The Orange Runner.

Okay, the challenge of sewing a table runner in 5 days... easy! I knew the birthday girl who it is intended for likes orange and I knew it had to be a quick design, so I selected some orange fabrics and made these little squares. The brown peice of paper underneath had a rough sketch on it of how many squares, their position and size. Once they were made, then I added the orange to the sides of each square.

And then more orange to the top and bottom to join them all up and I got this!

Let the quilting beginning! I popped the ipod on to ignore any demands by the children as I have till 6 tonight to have the binding on, label, wrapped and the card written! Time to stop blogging and get back to it!

The runner is lovely. We knew you could do it. I am sure she will love it, I do and I am not an orange person really.

Evidently tangerine (a.k.a. orange) is the colour this season and I would say you did a great job. Thanks for sharing your process. I know you will finish in time and your friend will just love it!
