August NewFO Challenge

Well, I have finally gotten around to making a new table runner to replace the one that ended up at my daughter's house in Tennessee.  This was my original table runner.


And this is my new one.  I made it a little larger because I decided to put this one on our sideboard.  I'll probably make another one for the table behind our couch.


I have also been working on my Miss Rosie's Toulouse.  I have all of the blocks finished now and have them sewn together into rows.  Now I need to sew the rows together.  Then I'll be working on the border.  I'm liking how it is coming together.


Visit Barbara over at Cat Patches and see what others have started this month.  Happy quilting everyone!

  3. I made some french braids a few years ago. Hadn't thought of using them for a table runner (mine were for a quilt border). Nice! LOVE that Miss Rosies quilt top. Sew pretty!

  7. Those Miss Rosie blocks are great - like a combo of four traditional blocks.

    1. The block used in Miss Rosie's Toulouse is one called Goose in the Pond. You can find it at: http://quilting.about.com/b/2013/04/05/two-sizes-goose-in-the-pond-quilt-block-pattern.htm

      I enjoyed making those blocks.

  9. Very nice! Looks great, so nice and flat. Miss Rosie looks like a lot of work, but worth it:)
