Another UFO from my fabric closet!
... {UnFinished Object} ...
More blocks found their way into a quilt today!  
They are so happy to be out of the dark closet and into the light!

This is a fairly long table runner at almost 50".

Each block is about 5-3/4" square.  
Being a scrappy string quilt, the points do not match ... on purpose.

I bought a TON of this dark red with tiny gold stars when I was on a Thimbleberries kick for my home.  It has come in so handy as quilt backs for my extensive Thimblerries collection.

Very nice tablerunner. I have a lot of Thimbleberry fabrics also from making Thimbleberry quilt samples for my local quilt shop. I have been making Country Threads free Block of the Month trying to use up my drawer of Thimbleberries.
