Friday Night Sew In

Another Friday Night Sew-In is in the books!  What is that you say?  It's a group of sewers that work on thier sewing projects on a Friday night and then post what they did on their blog.  I started in on my table runner (2011 Quilty Goal #3)


The pattern consists of several Churn Dash blocks in 4 different sizes.  I managed to make 3 out of the 4 sizes- the smallest size block is the only one I havent made yet.  This pattern is pretty long- 64.5 inches which is a bit longer than my table, so I'll have to shorten it...I think.  I've never had a table runner before--do I make it long enough so that people can sit on the ends and not be on top of it?  Or do I make it the entire length of the table?  Any table runner experts out there have any suggestions?

Looks great! Hmmm I am no runner expert, but I would vote for short enough people can sit on either end. But go with what you think and have fun with it! Can't wait to see more! :)

Great job with your FNSI! I agree with Megan.

I've seen long-over-the-end-of-the-table table runners that the folks at the ends of the table use as placemats. The folks on the sides had matching placemats.

The pattern sounds interesting and I love the fabrics you picked out!
