I used my new 5 and 1/2 inch square to rotary cut out all my table runner squares yesterday.
Then I laid them all out to arrange color and pattern placement.
I decided to keep it simple and not cut up the squares any more.
I'm very tempted to try cutting each square into fours but I realized to do that I can't use the squares I've already cut. I would have to cut new ones that are larger because of the seam allowances needed for the four by fours.
I want to try it, but I tell myself to keep it simple for this first table mat.
After all this is my first ever quilted Winter/Christmas Table Runner.
I'm so pleased too.
My Janome came with a 1/4 inch seam stitch and a 1/4 inch seam special foot.
It is a breeze to sew the 1/4 inch seams needed for the squares!!
Wish me luck that my square corners will match.
We're leaving tomorrow for a few days for a campout with my Hubby's brother and wife.
It's the first time in ten years!
So I'll be busy packing the "Little Guy" (i.e., travel van) today.
Now to find a crochet project I can work on in the van.
Our weather has been awful here.
Yesterday the dew point was 74 (anything over 60 is muggy).
I couldn't stand to be outside.
No biking (sob!)
Have a wonderful weekend and I hope your weather is better than ours!
