And in this instance I cannot blame "Jan" or anyone else only ME!!
Last night was Friday night sew-in and I had aimed to finish off a tablerunner that I have been working on using the "tube" method and all was going well until I got up to the binding - what no colour thread to match the binding - how could this be???
Off I went rustling through all my colour threads - every colour of the rainbow and grades of every shade but alas not the green I wanted. So for me Friday night sew-in turned into Saturday morning finish off after I called into the local sewing centre to get the thread which I might add took two of us to find just the right shade.
Anyway without any further ado here is my autumn tablerunner using the "tube" method which I enjoyed doing.
I can see more seasonal tablerunners - winter, spring and summer - being done using this method and a couple of cushion covers as well.

OH very nice runner. I really want to try this technuiche - need to stop talking about it and just DO IT.
I am so into making tablerunners at the moment - love to use them on all my tables including coffee tables and they make great gifts - in fact I am up to the binding on a 50th b'day pressie for tomorrow.
Hugs & Blessings
Looks fabulous Karen and the method is very addictive :) Love the colours you used :)
What a lovely tablerunner, Karen. It is very pretty. I must get around to having a go at doing one- another job for poor old " Ron" LOL :-}
Of course I had to read this post didn't I - I had to see what I wasn't getting the blame for this time LOL.

the runner is beautiful. I am going to try the 'tube' method. The girls at quilt group tried it last week and we were all very impressed.
Lovely colours you chose! This method is highly addictive; have already made 1 table runner, a cushion, and a table centre, with more fabric just sitting waiting to be sewn ... gardening first though.
Wow how beautiful !
That's a lovely runner, Karen ... I think you should be very happy now :))
Thanks for stopping by Karen. Your tablerunner is very nice and very automn like. I am curious, what is the "tube" method, never heard of it here?
That runner looks great Karen ..nice job.
Very nice Karen, that tube method is certainly catching on.
Well done. What a great job. Will have to try this tube method.
Oh I so love your table runner. Beautiful.
I am so addicted to this method and there are so many different blocks you can do with it! I love the colours you have used in this runner!! beautiful!
