Sunday Squares

Fail not to call to mind, in the course of the twenty-fifth of this month, that the Divinest Heart that ever walked the earth was born on that day; and then smile and enjoy yourselves for the rest of it; for mirth is also of Heaven’s making. –Leigh Hunt

I love how this table runner came out.

I used Charlie Scott's Sunday Squares tutorial, adjusting it from a 32"x 32" wall-hanging to table runner size.

I decided to go with the white between the center squares and the sawtooth border. I think that the green binding is just the right touch.

I gave this table runner to Mr. Bug's parents at his family party tonight. I kind of wanted to keep it. But Mr. Bug's mom really liked it, so I'm glad it went to a good home.

And here's a fun holiday song if you need a little background music at your family Christmas party.

What a great version of the song! I'm out of dough on my iTunes account, but I'm hoping the elves come thru for me--this is on my wish list.

I love it when you give handmade gift and it's well received. Your table runner turned out so beautifully.

I cant get over how many lovely things you've made for gifts.

I think you were 100% right in going with the white in the runner. It's beautiful! I'm going to check out that tutorial. And thanks for the music too. Love BNL!
