Crafting Day

I had some friends over today for a crafting day. I started out the day quilting on a (late) Christmas present for a friend. When I got the quilting done I decided to try out one of my Christmas presents. I got the Day and Night Elanor Burns quilt book from my parents this year. I have to say that this was a very easy pattern and the tablerunner went together really quickly. The only complaint that I have about this pattern is that it wastes ALOT of fabric. There are patterns for projects to be made out of the leftover bits, but even with those extra projects there is still quite a bit of waste.

I learned to quilt with Elanor Burns' videos, and always remembered that her floor (and ours) were full of scraps. Perhaps it's like that old saying about "Quality, Cost, and Time. You can choose any two, but seldom all three"

Glad you liked your present though, always nice to receive something you enjoy.
