I wanted to share an update on the table runner and a few pictures of trimmed HST (half square triangles). They are so pretty when they are all neat and trimmed and ready to go. It's funny how once they are trimmed, the fabrics look even better than they did before starting the project. How is that?
I prefer to use the quick HST method in which you draw a line down the middle of your squares, stitch 1/4" on either side, cut down the middle and voila! You have two completed half square triangle blocks. Just a little pressing with a hot iron is required.
These are so pretty that I had to share several pictures. I couldn't choose just one. I particularly like the fabric on top... Chinese Lanterns in Grass. Amy Butler is crazy talented. Her fabrics are amazing.
Here is a glimpse of the Christmas side and some cute scottie dogs...
I am currently working on a pattern for my reversible table runners and it should be available with the completion of this project, which will be very soon.
Here are two previous related posts with more information:
I thought I would leave you with this picture of flowers. I love bringing flowers in from the garden and these are decorations for a sweet little lady's birthday party. They were too pretty not to share.
Have a wonderful week!
