First Finish for 2013!

What a nice way to start my sewing year...starting AND finishing a table runner and set of coasters for my son to give as part of a wedding gift package.  I even broke into my small pile of Flea Market Fancy 6 inch squares for this project.   Now, that's a party.

 I found this backing at my LQS.  Lovely enough to make the backside viewable!

And I had to use a few more of those precious squares to make coasters.

Linking up with crazy mom quilts.  Have a wonderful weekend!

PS  I love working on these small projects...always something new to learn and opportunities to practice quilting.  But I really must get brave now and go  back to finishing some quilts!


  1. Congrats on your first finish for the year. I love the colors on it!

    I'm also working on table runners. Perfect size to see progress without a long commitment!

    Keep it up!

  2. Beautiful project! Love the pretty colors and design too.

  3. Very pretty table runner and love those little coasters--di you use a binding on them? I always have a problem binding smaller items...Julierose

    1. I did not use a binding on the coasters...sewed the right sides together, leaving an opening to invert, inverted and stitched close to the edge. I agree with you on binding smaller items!

  4. Those are lovely! I really like the texture the straight line quilting adds.


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
