Early color testing.
Blocks are set, and I like the gold floral for corners, but...
Can't decide white or red for inner border.

I like the Christmas red.

I might mix it up a little so they aren't all exactly the same.  I still can't decide which I like, and I found a different fabric that might work in place of the gold floral.  Lots to work with.

mixing it up a little bit, the center blocks are all the same, but the triangles are different.  Ended up going with white for the skinny border, otherwise the red and green pieces on the corners blend in too much; think I know which fabric I'm going to use for the outer border.   Might have a picture later today.   
One is still planned to be the other pattern, but I have a lot more work to do on that.

Trying out a couple fabrics for the second border.  Like the green floral, not sure about the red swirl (it is one of the reds in the patch blocks), I also have green in the swirl.
Prefer the gold triangles, but there will be one made with the holly print; you will be getting an assortment of tablerunners, they won't be identical.

I don't have a new picture, but the blue and yellow quilt is now finished, I just have to trim the thread tails.

3 table runner tops finished (1 with the white/green triangles, 2 with the gold), the tan print will be the backing.
[Might be able to quilt tomorrow, but my machine I quilt with is in the dining room, and Shayne is on the couch sick, so no noise out there today.]
One more to go, still planning to try out that new pattern, already have half the pieces cut and sewed for it, just need to work on the other half.

Found a table runner in the new pattern book that uses 3 blocks, so got the three blocks done today; tomorrow, I'll try to put them together with the sashing and borders and we'll have a table runner.  It'll be a bit wider and a bit shorter than the other table runners, but same fabrics.
