A new table runner for me :o)

Yesterday I had my day off work, and I started making a table runner I've had in my mind for a while. My inspiration was a quilt one of my fellow members in my quilt guild made some time ago. I liked the simplicity of it, but yet it was so cute! Hers was hand quilted, but I quilted mine in the ditch using my sewing machine.
Fast and easy one. Just had to do something for myself for a change :o)

It's made from 3,5" squares (you'll need 21). Strips in white are 1,5" x 3,5" (you'll need 18), 1,5" x 27,5" (you'll nedd 4) and 1,5" x 13,5 " (you'll need 2). I pieced it in rows and pieced the rows together with two of the 1,5" x 27,5" strips, and then added the two left along each side. Then I added the two strips at the shortest ends.

Nice to have a table runner with some Spring feeling even if it's lots of snow outside, and it's still snowing a bit.
My two youngest boys have been sick with the flu bug for a week now, and today I'm not feeling too good. Just hope it's not the flu bug that got me, and that the coughing and headache will pass by quick! Don't have the time to be sick now. Too much to do!
I'm off to have a cup of hot tea and some rest, and hopefully I can get back to work tomorrow, and that I'll will get some sewing done this weekend.

Happy sewing,

What a pretty tablerunner, it really looks like spring. I guess we have to wait for spring temperatures a bit longer, it started snowing here again today.
Hope you will feel better soon so you can get a lot of sewing done.
