Fast forward about 3 years and I had finished all the blocks and had a plan for the borders. But, of course I couldn't find any fabric that went with the 80's calicos. After several years of searching I found a green. I finished all the little angels I was going to use around the border, laid it out and yuck. You can check it out for yourself. Didn't like it at all. Don't worry, I just fused and cut out the angels no sewing. So came up with this border and auditioned it in a big size or a size that matched the logs on the pineapple. More to read here. Yep, little ones looked better. Sigh. After deciding that I put it away again. When I finished the bow tie quilt I decided it made some sense to pull out a project that I want to finish and use it as an ender. Except I've been sewing more on this than the blocks for the back of the table runner. Most of the pieces that are done are pinned and waiting to have another piece sewn on. And, I haven't really done any sewing since Friday. We'll see if I get bored with it again or if I get this UFO finished. Stop the presses or the computer or the sewing machine... when I viewed the two previous posts about this border I realized I had liked the bigger one, not the little ones. So why the heck am I making these itty bitty little pieces? Hum, why not go back to the big size that would take me way less time to make considering they are at least 2xs bigger than what I am working on now. I'll let you know what I decide once I get back into the studio this morning.
Today's plan is to finish all the blocks for the backing of the table runner. PUt them together and add whatever amount of extra fabric I need. And, maybe get it basted. (Depends on how long I hang out with the computer.) The little pieces for the pineapple border will continue to get sewn.

Happy Quilting All!
