House Table Runner

I've been thinking about a house-themed table runner for the hall stand in the entrance for a little while . . the thought just wandered around in my head - knowing one day a bolt would strike!  (so to speak) . . .and it did - chatting to my bestie about something else and bingo!   I remembered some blocks I stitched - a little while back...I looked back on my blog but couldn't find any reference to them . . .

But when I pulled out the box they were in - I saw a treasured piece of paper - 


So, I stitched these in 2013...then along the way, I collected some fabrics - from bestie!

I put 5 of them into a runner.


I will make a little hanging quilt from the 6th one - but need to wait until I have bought a mini quilt stand before I make it.

Great to have an old UFO done & dusted.

Looks wonderful.....great when you find a use for UFOs. A little mini will finish off the setting perfectly x

Perfect! It suits the table so well and the little house ornaments just add that little extra. A mini on a stand will be the ideal finishing touch.

Well done - it is very satisfying finishing a 'ufo' and finding the perfect place for it too... You must have known, when you stitched it, that you needed to pack it away for the right project.. xx
