Rick Rack Road Tablerunner

Sometimes I try to see just how much time it takes me to make certain projects. I time the amount of time I spend sewing each month, but not necessarily how much each project takes. Tonight I wanted to see how long it takes to make this Rick Rack Road tablerunner. It's made with a charm pack, a small bit of yardage, and rick rack. It's also made Quilt As You Go style of quilting. I'm showing a few friends tomorrow night how to make it, so I tested myself tonight. The finished table runner was done in less than 2.5 hours. The only change I had to make was to enlarge the center under the rick rack, since my rick rack was too big. I'm happy with how it turned out.

Here's a close up of the flange/ borders on the ends.

The binding is on and I just have to finish the hand work, which I should be able to do tomorrow.

Hopefully tomorrow night I'll get some pictures of the work in progress tablerunners.

What a fun tablerunner. I can see this pattern made from many different fabrics. I love the splash of red that jumps out when I see it.

Moneik, you always have the cutest things.

I like it! I know you said you thought the ric rack was too big but I don't. I think it's perfect for it!
