Table Scraps Challenge - December

I'm glad the deadline was extended for linking up our December Table Scraps Challenge entries, because mine was a Christmas gift I couldn't reveal until after the holidays.  Now that it's been gifted and received, I can show you how it turned out.

I can't remember whether I saw the idea for this table runner in a previous Table Scraps Challenge link by a fellow blogger, but however it happened, I fell in love with it at first sight.  There was a link to the pattern and I bought it right away.  The pattern is called Novella by Sew Preeti Quilts, and you can find it HERE.

My daughter and her boyfriend have two dear cats, and I thought they might really like something like this.  One Christmas gift down, check!

I pulled scraps and other fabric from my stash, and the batting was a scrap from the off-cuts of a recent quilt.  I loved the pattern's original color scheme so I felt fortunate to have what I needed on hand to stay pretty close to it.

Now, do I tell you I made a little boo-boo in assembly or not?  I guess I just did, but I'm not going to fess up to any more than that, because it really did not seem to matter one bit.  

This makes a nice long table runner or wall hanging, however you want to use it.  Before I wrapped it, I tacked it up in my kitchen for photos, and I have to say it looks pretty nice in that spot.  I may have to make another for me to keep!

Oh, I love this table runner / wallhanging. Such a cute pattern. And I dare say a perfect gift for your daughter and her boyfriend. If you made a mistake I certainly don’t see it. Maybe not so much a mistake, but a different approach?

Thanks for joining the Link Party! Lucky for you, we're having TABLE SCRAPS 2.0 next year, Paulette! You can make another lovely version of Preeti's Novella for yourself then. :o))

What a clever pattern. I have two cat-mad daughters and they would love this.
