Thanksgiving Table Runner

I had some corners left over from another project and rather than throw them in my scrap bin or in the trash, I decided to sew them together right away. Which led to trimming. Which led to a finished project ... 9 hours later! I started on Friday with no intention of completing a project but then felt a table runner gift for my brother and sister-in-law coming on and since we were leaving the city in the morning to see them, I was up until 3:00 a.m. finishing it. Well, almost finishing it. I left the hand sewing of the binding for the 2 hour road trip, which turned out to be exactly how long it took me to sew the binding on. Things always take me twice as long as I think they should.

My brother has a grain farm in a part of Saskatchewan well known for the numbers of geese that can be seen (and hunted) in the fall, so I chose to make my little scraps into flying geese going both north and south. 

I like it. I didn't get very good photos, though. It was on the table before I thought to get proper photos outside while it was still very nice out.
