Secret Sister Gift

Tonight is the big reveal for our quilt guild's secret sister program. The reveal will be made at our annual picnic & I'm just hoping it's not quite so hot by 6pm.

Since April we have been sneaking small gifts to our guild meetings to be distributed to our SS. This is our final month and each participating person was supposed to make potholders, placemats or a table runner as our final gift.

I was told that my SS likes green - I hope she likes this shade of green because I used my charm pack tumbler ruler to cut out greens and neutrals - a wonderful ruler that works with charms or strips. I backed it with a red and green butterfly print.

I used the envelope method instead of binding (saved binding all those crazy angles) and quilted 1/4" on both sides of every seam. A very easy finish to what I think is a great little runner.

Great posing for the cute little runner. A charm pack tumbler, you say? Sounds like something I *need*. Oh how I do love gadgets! And I'll have to look up the envelope method of binding. I like making irregularly shaped runners and toppers, except for binding the blasted things. Great finish, Sarah -- I'm sure your SS will be very pleased! And I hope there's something just as fun and nice waiting for you, too! :)
