THE TIME HAS COME, THE TIME IS NOW

Go to Sew WE quilt and I will show you how.

Then come back here and enter to win,
this wonderful runner, just say I'm in!!
Being a follower would be swell,
if not, no worries, all is well.



Okay, I shouldn't give up my day job....HA!!! Over at Sew We Quilt, I have shown how to make this little runner. It is made with the Accuquilt Heart Die but seriously you do not need one, just cut out your own.

With the left over hearts I made this candle mat (or little table topper)...but I am keeping it.

Good luck!

The giveaway is now closed!! Thanks for coming by!!

That is a great project except that I really don't understand what you did to get the cutouts but once I play I guess I will.

Sharon said...

Those are both great table mats/runners. They are so cute. I don't have one of those Go Cutters but don't think it would be too hard to cut your own hearts. Thanks for showing us how to do this.

Linda said...

I'm in! Your post over on Sew We Quilt was great! I love both of them, the runner and the mat! They are both so cute. I even learned something I didn't know. I guess I was just dumb or didn't think about it but I learned that if you don't put the mat on, it won't cut it. Well, duh, of course you need something to press against it to make it cut. Boy, is my face red! It must be the glow from the tablerunner I want to win! Thanks, Barb for the chance to win and for the informative and cute post!

Joanna said...
