Thursday's Report

Boring post title--I'm in a hurry!   A friend is on her way here.

Hey, thanks for all the blue dot love.  As I replied to most of you, the blue dot was always in the lead but I was mourning its impending end, since I barely have enough to make the binding and then that beloved fabric will be gone.  But it was well used, so no real regrets! 

My sewing area once again looks like a bomb went off in there, I have been working on so many different things and getting distracted with ideas for my scraps, but there has been some sewing going on.

Trust me, there is another point on the end of that runner, I just couldn't seem to get it in the camera shot.  I let the amazing Bonnie of quiltville.com do the MATH--her tip sheets have saved me often.  This time to get the proportions for the triangle ends, I used her formula for on point settings, figuring that the end of the runner was like a corner block in an on point setting.   It worked perfectly and I am ready to go on to the backing and quilting.  Sigh of relief!

Bonnie's tip sheets have saved me many a time. In fact, I just used them ti figure the side and corner triangles for my Barrister's Sow-Along blocks.
The table runner looks very good--bold and graphic!

Love the table runner! My sewing room is such a mess that I can't even navigate to my machine right now. :-)
