Carrot Tablerunner

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLAugust 14, 2008

When I went on a shop hop while up north, I picked up some orange FQ's with this project in mind. I thought someone here had posted one they did but I couldn't find it. I have a mag with the pattern in it, but it's also online. I put birthday cake fabric on the back so it could be reversed. Doing the orange and black binding was a bit tricky, but I did it! I also sewed my strips at an angle instead of straight across.

The green top actually doesn't look too bad showing on this side. It's just tucked under in this pic.

Sharon,
This is so cute and clever.
How did you get binding on so well. If I did it I know some of either the black or the orange would show on the other side.

I love it Sharon!!! I should make one for my sis with a Christmas and Bday, hers is the day after Christmas.
She told me she has never had a birthday party, I told her that is because only a fool would be born so close to Christmas LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She has even gotten Bday presents wrapped in Christmas paper.
Not from me!! I do not give her the gift early and I always use paper and colors not usually associated with Christmas.

Jennifer, My body tells me I'm old in years, but in my heart I'll never grow up. My 50th high school reunion is this year and, nope, I'm not going! I don't want to see how old those people look. Course, it's better than the alternative.

Thanks, Rosa. Your sister would probably appreciate being able to 'flip' her tablerunner over for her BD. We're having a Christmas baby this year....due the 22nd.

Jan, How nice to see you! The fabric with the cakes is one of those you just hate to cut up. I'm starting to put them on the backs of the tablerunners I'm making so that helps to use them up.
