Table Runners

I seem to have caught a table runner bug. Just finished the hexie table runner top (above) tonight.

Whilst I was working on the hexie table runner I started thinking about this one. It's using French General's new range "Rural Jardine" This one needs some more. Not sure what yet. I'm thinking about it.

And then whilst working on table runners 1 and 2 this one popped into my head. Blogger prefers it portrait. I however prefer it landscape. (Always seem to be having trouble with blogger and photos!) Off hand I can't remember the name of this Moda range. Something french? This one needs more work on the top too. I have this one all planned out in my head. Just need to get to it! I guess if I was just working on one table runner at a time I would be finished one by now. But that's just not how I work, lol! I am hopeful of finishing one of them this week. The end of the month is nigh and I am thinking about OPAM finishes. Not sure why I wait till this late in the month to think about it, but I do! Not sure just how much time I will have before June 30. We have family from Brisbane staying with us next week and I am trying to get the house clean and straight in preparation. As you can see, it's not going so well! The sewing room keeps winning out to any cleaning. *sigh* Wish me luck! (Not sure if I mean for the table runners or the cleaning. Lol!)

I like all three, but the last one is definitely my favorite.

I need to make one of these. We have a glass coffee table and my Dad keeps barking his shins on it when he comes over.

The French General one needs a little bit more red, maybe just a small border???

Yes I agree, more red for the French General. Plenty of time till the end of the month, just do a bit of cleaning then a bit of sewing each day (in that order, so the sewing is a reward for the cleaning)

I like the French General too, but I do love the colours of the 'Avignon' in the last one....

Wow! You've been busy, Kris. Each runner is lovely, but I especially love the third one. Bright colours get me every time! LOL
I'll wish you luck with finishing the tablerunners AND with the cleaning. ;o)

They're all so beautiful Kris!

I've never been a table runner kind of gal - but these have me seriously inspired.
