I'm now Quilting...TTS Blocks.

Wednesday saw me in my Sewing Cave to finish off my last 2 blocks of my TTS ...
I had decided from the begining that I was going to make a Tablerunner with my blocks rather than a Quilt..We have a very long table which is Needing More Tablerunners...
I did a Complete turnaround and took off the 2nd lot of Borders on all blocks & have put on 2 seperate border strips down both sides of the blocks....
I forgot to take a piccie of the last 2 blocks but here it is being quilted...I have also added on some extras & the binding is now on....I will follow up with a final photo soon.

Cheers
Maree
