Got a little too into it....

So I'm working on few Christmas gifts still, yes you heard right, Christmas gifts. I had asked Zach's mom what she wanted me to make her while she was out here and be both decided on a table runner. So on Christmas morning I gave her a little note saying that one was on it's way. I had to order the fabric yet and find a design that we both liked. Once that was found/decided....well, it took me some time to get the gumption the cut into the wonderful Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow fabric. It's all good though, I'm going to get it done, I have a deadline. I've officially found out that I'm an "under the gun" kinda sewer. I like having a time/date when things should be done so that I have motivation and have to just start. Zach's brother and his fiance are coming for a visit in a few days and I have to get it done by the time they get here so I can send it with them. Perfect for me:)
So I got to cutting my squares the other night and I found another thing out about myself...math is not my strong suit. At all. To make a long story short, I cut twice as many squares as I needed! Oh well, now I have the makings of another table runner that I can give away:)



Sad thing was that it took me until the next day to figure it out! I was cutting away on the second day and then had the realization. Man, I rock.

So here are the right amount of squares....

And the pending layout of the table runner. Now I know that it looks REALLY big, but I have a midget Ikea table and if I had a big table it'd look right!
