I worked on this at the retreat.....I'm forever learning.....should have used different fabric for the strips, but I really like the center block!

Why do you think you should have used different fabric for the strips? I like it as it is. The colors are strong and really set off the white.

Salijo, To my untrained eye, it just looks like it's too much of the same fabric. I plan to give you girls (Julie and Heather, too) first choice of all the runners and send the rest to Peggy's for the cousins for Christmas. I think I have them all posted here in the gallery so you can start looking. @:)

Beverly, Yep, at least 3 more to go. I have 3 more blocks to do on Raina's quilt then I can put that together. Hope to get to that today.

They are all beautiful, but this is my fav!!! I like the strips as they are. The center block is gorgeous, and I love red, white, and blue but it doesn't match any room in my house.
Who cares right?? I am an eclectic kind of person anyway!!!
Sharon I do needle turn but I have never basted the sewing lines, does it help??

Thanks, Rosa, Good to 'see' you! I've missed you. I sometimes baste the pattern line to the background if I want to really be precise. Plus, it holds it there for when I'm totin' it around or have to quit in the middle of sewing. There's a link on the KOKO thread to what I mean.

You don't need anything in a room to match for holiday colors. @:)

Salijo, I'm not sure, but I have a couple wreath patterns in mind and I also want to do an Easter egg one. What I need to do is to put everything away except for the tablerunner patterns, Raina's quilt and the Boston Terrier fabric/pattern, then I wouldn't be so apt to work on other things. It would also help if I didn't sit at the computer as much as I do. @:)

Sharon,
This is beautiful. Like, Rosa, I like the colors , too.
Looking forward to seeing all your table runners, too. Haven't seen one I did not like yet!
Can we all choose our favorite?? :)
Salijo, I do think you have an advantage!! Another reason to be glad you are here!!

Thanks, Sally. I'm appliqueing one now that's gonna be a beauty....at least I think so cause I love Christmas red and green and stark white together. I'm thinking about making it into a big circle, but not sure yet. Might look more like a candle mat.

Sure, you can choose your favorite. I think I've posted all of them todate. There should be 9. Christmas moose, purple green and pink hearts, Spring Flowers, Shamrock, Turkeys, jack-o-lantern, carrot, yellow tulips and patriotic. Five will go to my immediate family, the rest to the nieces and maybe my mom.
