What do you do...

...when you've got a bunch of leftover charm squares after a project?


You make tablerunners! 

To make the "Good Fortune" Schnibble the way I wanted I had to buy four charm packs to get enough dark blue.  Well when all was said and done I was left with 81 charms leftover.  So with the addition of a little solid white and dark brown, I made two tablerunners yesterday morning.  The plaid behind the runners will become the backing for them.  Both runners come from the book On the Run by Heather Mulder Peterson.  Now I am left with 53 charms left to use and I think I have a table topper  from the same book that I can use them for.

In other news with our local quilt shop owner, I picked out a fantastic new project using...


I love Three Sisters fabrics and can't wait to dive into this newest line which consists of reds, browns, beiges, and blues.  It's absolutely gorgeous!  The patterns are being ordered today so hopefully in a week or two I'll have something to share.

Love your tablerunners, am going to go look for the book. They are cool for different reasons, but really love the idea of the half flower blocks on one on the right. Cyndi
