Times two

 I fooled you, I didn't finish my table runner.

Why, you ask.

Well, I was looking at the leftover fabric and thought, I could make another one.  The second one has slightly smaller outside borders but otherwise, exactly the same.

I guess this is why I always buy too much fabric, so I can double my fun?
 Speaking of too much fabric, I dove into my stash to look for backing fabric.

In the spring of 2010, I made some bags, etc. to donate to Shelby's sorority auction.  I had bought bunches of fabric at Hancock's of Paducah and look at this, I had a bunch of pink fabric left.  (Shelby's sorority colors were pink and green.)

There is enough for two backs and still about a half a yard left over. 
 I got the first one on Gladys.

Am I brave enough to attempt feathers on this table runner?

I don't know!

In the meantime, I stitched in the ditch along all the borders and squares.

I like this fabric more every time I work with it. 
As I work on the first one, I can see its twin sister on the loft railing, waiting its turn.

Hang on, sister!  First I have to figure out what design I am going to do.  I am leaning towards flowers but maybe I should give feathers a try?

I will let you know when I figure it out.

Sew happy!
