What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I was actually able to make the runner turn out as I envisioned it. I'm also proud that I bought the fabric on Monday, sewed it on Wednesday and mailed it on Friday! A personal turn-around record.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a pattern that's like what you are going to make! I couldn't find the directions for the one I made in class, so I settled for the FL Extension one. It doesn't use the fusible, so I just added it as I thought best at the time. Fuse to the unstripped fabric! My seams got folded over in a few spots, so the front of the strips don't lay perfectly.

Very nicely done! Well thought out and carefully crafted. Really nice especially for a first project!!

It is even more beautiful than it looks in the picture! I will be able to pick up the red in it with my Valentine dishes--Old Country Roses--and the pinks and tourquoise to using with my pink Nortake Easter dishes. I am sure I will have it out most of the year. You did great! Mom
