3rd Finish for 2012

Here is my 3rd finish for the year. I had hoped to finish it in February but didn't quite make it.

I am really happy with it. It turned out really nice and sorry I never finished it earlier. Only took I think between 8 - 10 years to finally finish !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I machine sewed the binding down again. I attach the binding to the back first then sew it
down on the front. It is so much faster than hand sewing down at the back and much faster at
getting these UFOs finished quicker.

Now off to pull out and dust off my next UFO. A bit different in colour scheme than the last 3. More pretty colours and an applique project.

Til next time, Happy Cre8ting

It is lovely and I am pretty sure I recognise the pattern or maybe I have a similar one in my stash. Table runners are probably my favourite thing to make.
