Sometimes I think I should have my head examined.  I saw this table runner and thought it was all applique and decided to make it.  When I got home and read the pattern in the book, I realized it is all pieced!  Yikes!  The book is The Trendy Table by Heather Peterson of Anka's Treasures.  You can get it at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  There are 15 table runners in it (all pieced).  Above is just a test piece.  I struggled for three hours, sewing, unsewing, reading, rereading, and finally finished the block.  Guess what!  It is square!  I'm going up to the shop today to get fabrics.  I'm going to finish this one.  It may take me a while, but I think it will be great.  I love flowers.


Don't forget to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop and pick up your Passport for the Jingle Bell Hop which takes place from Nov. 11 -19.  Passports are only $5.  Along with the purchase of a passport you will get a free pattern, store discounts, and your name will be entered into daily drawings.  Each shop will offer a grand prize of a $50 gift certificate.  You won't want to miss this!!!

Good for you, Caroll! You go girl! You shall win this one. The flower is so cute. What a sweet Spring table runner several of these flowers would make into.
