|Friendship Star Table Runner|
2000, jill here.....Perhaps I didn't mention that each guest made their own project, customized to their interior or gift choice. So after the first year's success, I chose a more ambitious table runner, a Friendship Star. It was amazing to teach non-quilters about not nipping off the star points! And, of course, some took it more seriously than others!
This was a party and one hates to be a task master. It is the holidays after all. Chatter is far more important!
I had to take breaks to check on the food so Marny stepped forward to keep the project rolling. We had machines upstairs and down with at least a couple of pressing stations. It was mass chaos with the fun factor. At the end of the afternoon, the guests left with a nearly finished runner (or left it for instructor finishing). A little binding and we were good for another year.
