Table Runner Progress

A couple of posts back I showed you the table runner I was making out of some orphan blocks I had. I didn't have a pattern; I was just making it up as I went along. I needed to do the math to figure out the size of the corner triangles.

Here's my table runner, again.

 
I was perusing some blogs Wednesday afternoon and came across a quilter who was making a very similar runner. Take a look at Quilting and Other Craft Therapy.  Deb is on a mission to finish off a lot of UFOs, and she's doing something called the 100 Day Hustle. I will have to read further, but I did like her purple table runner, and it gives me an idea as to how to approach borders, which I hadn't yet considered. So, thanks, Deb!
 
I also spent a bit of time laying out my Kaffe Fassett blocks. I am really anxious to sew this together.
 
 
 
It's not going to be a very big quilt - more of a lap quilt, I suppose. However, I could possibly add a lot of borders, so maybe it will be bigger than I think. I certainly have plenty of KF fabric to use if I do want to make some big borders! The stash is plentiful!!
 
My thanks for November 29:
I am thankful for regular willing communication from my kids. They are good about staying in touch, whether with a call or a text, just to say hi.
 
Happy Quilting, Friends!

You are more than welcome Jayne! I love your Kaffe Fassett blocks and your thankful "footnote", I'm going to read back in your blog to see more. I'm a Diet Pepsi borderline addict too...

Your runner looks good, and so do the Kaffe blocks.
