First, the FAL logo, so you can find Rhonda.
(P.S. I have no clue what I'm doing, so it is such a thrill when I cut and paste some HTML here, and a logo actually appears. Yay!)
On to the goals.
First, a simple one. I have this table runner that I made up about a year ago, then put to the side because something else caught my fancy.
The green fabric off to the side is for the binding. I thought that since the blocks reminded me of flowers, green trim could be leaves or stems.

I pulled it out of the bag I had been storing it in. The magazine that had the pattern in it was there too. It was a Quilter magazine from 2002!! Now, I have to say that I didn't start sewing it in 2002. But, I probably started in 2004. I remember that I made it bigger than the pattern said. There is still a piano key border to go around the outside, then another fuschia border
I started to put the border together, and panicked, because I had no idea how many pieces it would take to go around my new bigger centre. I remember being really concerned that they wouldn't come out even, and I had no idea how to deal with that.
Luckily, I have since learned an important skill - how to fudge! Looking at it now, it doesn't seem so difficult at all. Isn't it interesting how time and practice make things easier?
Third goal is - you guessed it! My ever patient son needs to have his quilt finished.
So that's it. Three goals. I'm really pumped for this quarter, so we'll see how it goes!
