{Post #878} New Foyer Table Runner

Today we took down all our Christmas decorations and got them in the attic in about an hour.  We had already taken down the tree a few days ago.  I put a table runner on my foyer table and put up my apple quilt.  The runner did not look good.  It also had apples on it and together the quilt and the runner...they just looked...looked...stupid!!

I was downstairs doing laundry, so I whipped up a runner I had in mind.  I had seen this style a long time ago, and it just seemed like it would match the table and quilt better.

Here is my sad little tree.  This is a new little sign I just got a few days ago.  I like it.  The tree might have to go.

This was a quilt-as-you-go, so it worked up very quickly.  I sewed the binding down while Isaac and I finished watching a movie we started last night.  This seems to work and look better.

What a cute table runner - a great idea; I like the way you say you 'whipped it up', sounds like an ideal project!
