A Table Runner for Sew Katie Jean

I just finished this sew charming table runner as  a sample for a class I will be teaching at Sew Katie Jean.

This table runner was created from the simple little table runner pattern on moda bake shop. Once I had made a table runner from this pattern, I knew that it would be perfect for teaching the new quilter or anyone who wants to make a charming project in just one afternoon. I already used this pattern to teach my mother in law to quilt, and I know she had such a fun time learning.

I really love this pattern and think that is just so much fun to make. I am also really proud of myself for having a second finish for 2012. This is so unlike me. If I keep this up I might actually get through all the projects I have planned this year.

I am so proud of this one. For many reasons. 1st - I really did finish this is just a weekend. 2nd - I have two finishes already done from my unfinished pile. 3rd -  I am getting so much better at machine binding. 4th - It is another project off the list. 5th - Once I decided to do this project, I didn't procrastinate. 6th - For once, I followed my block organization and did not get the placement all mixed up. 7th - It is funky and bright. So very cheery.

    I visited Sew Katie Jean yesterday for the first time. She has several of the great fabrics that I've been admiring online! I picked up some Spring Street while I was there, too.
