Table Runner

Hello, this is another kit (a weakness!) I got from Connecting Threads back in 2010.  I didn't realize it at the time but it is Christmas fabric.  As I mentioned earlier, I'm not impressed with the quality of their fabric.  It is cheaper than the brand name stuff, but you only get what you pay for! Hah!  Live and learn.  I also had to piece the backing as the kit was short on the promised backing.  At least it is off my overcrowded kit shelf!
This is the pattern that came with the kit.  I'd make it again.

Friday Finish

Hello, one of my goals this year in addition to finishing up my various tops, is to start sewing my many kits and finishing them.  Here's one I bought from Connecting Thread way back in 2010.  I bought two, this one and a table runner, just to check out the quality of the fabric.  I'll just say the price was right but the mainstream quilt shop companies have nothing to worry about!  I find Connecting Threads to be a bit 'stiff' and not having a pleasant hand.  Just my opinion.
This is the pattern that came with the kit.  So easy to make, and I highly recommend it.  It uses partial seams but they're a piece of cake.
