What materials did you use? I used muslim squares and music scrap material for inserts as a theme. Around the edge has a crocheted edging. a table runner for the first try at this.

What are you most proud of? the fact that by observing it on tv ,I was able to write down the instructions. I'm pleasantly pleased with my first attempt,and I'm already planning on a larger version for my twin bed. I also love the fact you don't need a backing or batting or an edgeing. I put on an edgeing because it needed something for width.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm really new to quilting. never had time when I was working full time. start with smaller project like a table runner and colors or themes you might already have. Have the courage to try somthig new and surprise yourself.You'll get inspired to do more than you think.

Well done! I've attempted this in the past. It's not easy and it looks like you have it mastered!

This is beautiful! I've made ornaments out of them, but now I want a tablerunner to match my ornaments! To make an ornament, you put two back to back, then turn 1/4 turn and sew the ends down...and you have your front and back that way to add your different fabric! You can stuff the inside w/a little batting before whipstitching the top closed and add a little string to hang it on the tree...or ribbon...would be perfect w/this runner! I'm so excited! I want to start making this ASAP! lovely!!!

I really like that. I made a quilt for my son's bed years a go. Never thought about a table runner. A great idea.

I have already shared the cathedral ornament...its on here in my projects and there's a link to step by step instructions, too. I'm looking forward to making one of your runners!
