The Best Souvenirs!

The best souvenirs from a vacation are the ones you can bring home and use over and over again!  I took the four Finger Lakes wine fabrics (they are really from Timeless Treasures!) and designed a simple table runner out of them, which I finished up last week but have just now had a chance to write a post about.

I made three simple blocks based on 2 1/2 inch dimensions and used bits of all four fabrics in them.   Each block finished at 12 inches.

I used up the leftovers to make a scrappy binding.

And, you can't see it, but the batting is even scrappy, leftover pieces, sewn together.  I loved using up a couple smaller pieces of batting for this small project!

To top it all off, the case of wine we ordered arrived just the other day.  Cheers!

Those fabrics are great, I like Timeless Treasures too. I totally agree, the best souvenirs are fabrics!

How wonderful to now have something to remind you of a vacation. That is a great idea! I really like the design of the runner. Enjoy the wine!

Oh my goodness! I just love this! I know several wine lovers (I just might be included in that category LOL). . . I am going to have to find some of that fabric! It is fabulous :) I really like how the grape fabric looks on the binding.

Awesome to see your runner all sewn up so quick! It looks great...ahh, so does the vino! :-)
