I hope everyone can understand this... it really is very simple... 1/3 yd and 1/2 yd (back and borders)

Not only are the instructions good, the little presentation is so cute. You guys are so clever. I do good to post a picture. Thud

Thanks Golo, I really like this. Will try as soon as I can.

(I made the hexagon one you shared, came out very nice. I need to make another.)

Oh thats wonderful Golo, now 'runners for dummy Gimpy' can be understood, thank you for not only making another one but taking the time to photograph and set up the smile box Hug My brain is like a deep or maybe shallow?? pool of mud, some things just arent computing at the moment and darned if I could conceptualize how to get the points on the end, now I know. Thank you xoxox

PS This is the coolest way to watch a tutorial!

CC right on ... if you have 15 to 20 minutes you have it made.... some of the gals did fall ones with leaves and autumn colors, some did Halloween with pumpkins and skeletons etc and one did a beautiful one with a large black flower and silver with a brown border... it was beautiful... could see it with a white poinsettia on it and others were just pretty Xmas pine fabrics.. any combination was lovely.... there were 7 gals there... a very friendly bunch..

I'm with you Gimpy. Very foggy between the ears. Pictures help soooo much. And the smilebox is great!

Glad you had a good class Golo. Would love to have seen all the variations. One of my favorite things is to see an item made up in a bunch of different ways.
DH just informed me last night that a guy at work is getting married Saturday and wanted to know if I had something "laying around" to give as a gift. Maybe this is the ticket. No layering, quilting, etc. Might have to try.

Thanks for the well wishes Gloria. Getting there slowly but surely.

memaw, try googling 10 Minute Table Runner and see if you can get the pattern from a university that first posted it....
