UFO Challenge 2012 update

Judy asked if we made any progress on our March UFOs.  I'm pleased to report I actually finished mine, which were these two tablerunners: 

Baby Boxes, and...

...Party Time.   This is the fourth tablerunner I have made from this book:


Heather Mulder Peterson's On the Run.  She's done a lot of pattern books built around precuts but gives general cutting directions so you can use scraps or other yardage.  I really like the strong diagonal lines in many of her designs.  Check out the Inspiration page on the website for some of the beautiful projects in her books: http://www.ankastreasures.com/


I made this one, called Sweet Escape, last year to give to the caterer for my daughter's wedding.  I pulled the blue and pink charms from a pack of Boutique; the Party Time runner has the other colors from the same charm pack.


This one, Fresh Blossoms, was a blogversary giveaway prize in 2011.  Since I'm giving the Party Time runner to my mother, only one of the four actually will stay here.  Seems I need to make a couple more from the book!
