A day off!

I had yesterday off. I was supposed to go to a ceremony at Cordelia A. Green Library (I'm a trustee/secretary) where we were supposed to be presented a hefty check from our local Senator - but he cancelled his trip :^(

Instead I spent the day sewing and quilting!!!! Here's just a smidge of what I accomplished...

You will remember from Monday that I quickly pieced this runner over the weekend...I also decided to keep the quilting simple as it's for the Christmas Bazaar and less quilting means it's cheaper and therefore more likely to sell. I've had this FQ bundle for quite some time. It's pretty but turns out it's not good quality and I'm happy to have finally found a use for it.


I had a few pieces left over so I put together a quick Twister mug rug. The blue is the backside of the runner.


I also quilted another runner, again very simply.


It was good to have a day at home and I feel that I got a lot accomplished, even if I didn't show it all here.

Did you know that it's almost Missy's Birthday??!! Hop on over to her blog where she is having a Giveaway at the end of this week - don't miss out!

What a nice tablerunner. It turned out very nicely~~love the blue on the back. It should sell with no trouble at the sale.

Love the runners and rug mat. Boo to the senator who didn't show up, but I'm sure you were happy to have the day to sew.

I like your table runners. Is the second one based on Anita's piecing of the arrowhead block?
Thanks for sharing and linking up at Applique Thursday!

Nice tablerunners! Good colors and simple patterns, sure to please lots of folks. I'm making tablerunners to sell too, and definitely will be keeping the quilting to a lower level. I may even do some stitch and turn with no binding but make the quilts two-sided, for an even faster finish!
