Halloween table runner
Jenny Doan is back teaching more fun techniques using pre-cuts with advanced patterns to make rag quilts, Dresden plates, Drunkard's Path and more.
What materials did you use?
Just picked out some bolt halloween fabrics and cut them up :)
What are you most proud of?
Proud that I improvised after my huge mistake of not layering properly.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Check the video just before layering and sewing.... or have a little note with you.
How did you get the binding to travel round the internal corners?
Just wondering if you read my "instructions" because this project almost ended up in the trash!! LOL When I sewed it together prior to turning it "inside out" I had the layers in the wrong places. So when I turned it how it was supposed to be my batting was on the outside, not the inside. Not knowing what to do I simply sewed another layer of fabric onto the back simply leaving about a 1.5 cm of fabric hanging. Then since at least it was for Halloween I simply made cuts about every cm. or so on that edge so it would fray after bing washed. It was this or toss! So I laugh when I get a bunch of compliments like on my other quiting network but thank you for your interest. It is not nearly as impressive as people think but at least I saved my project : )
The colors and layout of this piece are outstanding!
