Fall Projects

With a new school year started, time has been slipping away. Along with our typical homeschooling at home, we also are part of a homeschool co-op where parents take turns teaching classes, as well as a Girl Scout troop (with girls from Kindergarten through high school). My projects have taken a back seat, but it's time to get them finished, so I've been busy this week getting everything to the point of quilting.

Here are a few of the things I'm working on:
Maple Leaf Table Runner (2 of these, slightly different variations)
Patchwork Table Runner (2 of these). These will have scalloped edges!

 From Mary Engelbreit's fabric collection, "The Caroler." 

I would like opinions here. I started with 2 panels and had the "turnovers" (triangles) in the same fabric line already. I used those to border the panel. To me, this could be a finished piece (with a border, quilting and binding) OR I could add several wide borders to make it a lap quilt. Currently these are about 20" x 30". What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Lori, I can't help you on this one. This is way out of my league.

I don't know what to tell you, except I think as a consumer I would prefer the leaf pattern as a lap quilt over the other one. Both are nice!

Hi Lori,
Could you email me the measurements for your maple leaf table runner, and the color of the outside panel that borders the leaves? Price might help, too! I think you will be able to sell these, no problem...they look great!
