This week I started the assembly of one of the Christmas table runners I plan to make: the one that will be going to Germany. I’ve told you before that I like table runners because I am able to use up small scraps of batting. When I say small, I’m talking no bigger than 8” x 8” or smaller. When I need larger pieces, I use the bridging stitch to put batting pieces together (see my July 2, 2018 blog entry for detailed instructions). My process here is not “Best Practices” in quilting, but it works for me. Follow the pictures and see what you think. There will be a promised picture of the finished market bags from last week at the end of my blog entry. Happy Sewing!!!
Here are the farmer’s market bags from last week. They have a short handle and a longer shoulder handle plus a zippered pocket on the back of each tote.
