I had a spare 15 minutes tonight to quilt so I decided to work on my table runner. LOVE it - it's a 6-sided table runner consisting of 9-patches made from Civil War fabrics.
Hmmm.... guess it's just me, but, when I bought the pattern, I didn't give much thought to the "6 sides" or how to add the borders. It's a lousy pattern - especially the instructions for creating the mitered ends! UGH!
But, I was feeling confident and it worked out! What d'ya think?
I've never mitered before, and I couldn't figure out their instructions. The pinning thing didn't work, but the glue did! Teresa from Fabric Therapy had posted some great applique tutorials using disappearing purple school glue sticks so I had some on hand.
Looking at the borders, shifting as I tried to pin... why not? Glue worked wonderfully, held the borders in place, and were snipped away when I trimmed my seam allowance.
SO geeked! Both ends look wonderful! Had to share!
