A fellow guild-member named Judy sent me a picture of two table runners that she recently made from charm packs. Here’s what she had to say about them, “They are from the book ‘Fast & Furious quilting as you go’ by Gudrun Erla. The runner is called Lucky Charms. It only takes 5 light and 17 medium to dark charms (backing, binding and batting extra). The size is 8 1/2″ X 26 1/2″. A really quick and easy runner that can be made for all occasions. Everyone that has made this has said it is very addicting and lots of fun!”
I met Judy recently when I took an all-day sewing class sponsored by my guild. (You can read about that in an earlier post). During the class we chatted about how fun charm packs are to work with and the possibilities are almost endless.
We also took a break with a few other sewing buddies to go visit a fun little quilt shop in the area that had just opened up. You know you are having fun while attending a quilting class and a shop hop breaks out! Isn’t this place cute? The owner is super friendly and is a mom with young kids, just like me!! This is exactly the type of shop I would want to run if I owned a “brick and mortar” store rather than my on-line shop.
