IMG_3096 IMG_3097 I mentioned on the week end that I found some blocks…two very lonely Red Delicious blocks…..just lost the plot doing these, but any way I have turned them into table runners….this is the first completed one..I think it has turned out OK….so this is another completed OPAM for me…

Take care Peg…:>)

What a great way to use the orphan blocks. The runner turned out really well. I too did just the first two blocks, so should do something similar.

The runner is adorable, Peg! It looks like it was always meant to be a runner, and I can't imagine it any other way!

Love the paw prints in the background of your page, too.

Thanks for all your well wishes!

Peg, this is a bit eerie...I have finished that block, and that block only for that block of the month! I missed printing out a couple of monthly patterns, so I said what the heck...and only finished that one block. Your table topper is wonderful!

Isn't that cute - good idea to make something useful out of orphan blocks!

Pat said...
