swap runner


I made thie little runner for a "spring swap" and i discovered that if i use a 12 inch block a fat quarter is not quite big enough for the setting triangles but if i can find a 10 or 11 inch block i'll have a great way to use up all those cutsy or large print FQs that i've bought and could not think of a use for. It wont work as well with a directional print which is too bad but still gives me good ideas!
And for those who were wondering about the move, hubby is going away for a year(Air Force) and I'm not up for another deployment so the kids and I are moving back to mom's for the year. This is a good news bad news situation. Bad news: he's gonna be gone, and mom and I have had our share of differences over the years. Good news: Cheap Rent, lots of relatives to help(both me helping them and them helping me), and maybe mom and I will both remember that i'm not a teenager anymore.

Good luck on your move- and remembering you are not a teenager. That really made me smile. Sometimes moms treat us like kids still LOL
