No, it's not the sleeve of a new blouse.
I am turning my new paper-pieced table runner right side out.
First I had to tear off all the paper on the back side. Some people find this task so displeasing that they refuse to do paper piecing. I find it relaxing (to a point). Tearing all the paper off a king-size quilt is a bit daunting if you try to do it all in one day. But little items like this are no problem at all.
Remember the turkey block?
Well, I made another block with the turkey facing the opposite direction and combined those two blocks with some I had previously made. Now I have a new table runner which I have aptly named, 'Turkey Trots'.
It can be used anytime since it does not scream, "Thanksgiving", having turkeys in only two blocks.
I have it on my table right now with this chicken in the center. I do have a turkey soup tureen which I can use closer to Thanksgiving.
You will have to click on it to see any detail.
I love making runners because they are quick and easy and I have about all the bed quilts I need. The runners take up much less space and I don't have to hand quilt them. In fact, I barely even machine quilt them--just around the edges and in the center of each block to hold the backing securely.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
