January UFO Finish

 This table runner was started in 2009 and was the UFO I chose to finish for January....
It is Mary Englebreit fabric in a disappearning 9 patch....
 Here is the top on my sewing table on Christmas Day....
That is where I have put it for the past 5 Christmas holiday seasons....
the holiday season is one of the rare times when I close up my machine....
I have put a lot of photos on instagram so I won't put more here......
My instagram photos are in a slideshow on the right....
Notice the quilting in the border to look like the ribbon candy in the fabric....
Here is a closeup of my little clips I like to use when doing the hand binding to the back...
Smiles and hugs....Caryl

Linking to NTT, finish it up Friday, Link a Friday Finish and Linky Party Tuesday
