Note From Team Nancy

Instead of seaming the narrow ends of the Pellon Fleece, fuse narrow ends of  fleece with a 2″ x 12″ strip of White Easy Knit Interfacing and Eze-View Pressing Cloth! Meet narrow ends of fleece, no need to overlap, and fuse!

Note From Team Nancy

 

To prevent fleece from slipping off ironing board, clip to ironing board using Jumbo Wonder Clips

    Love the idea of a quick table runner using a panel and the metallic bias adds some pizzazz!

    I love the table runner tutorial and I hope to make a table runner for the challenge.

    I have never used Quick Bias, but now am dying to try it. I love panels and have used them for quilts and placemats but never a table runner, how clever! Both are on my wishlist now.

    Lovely to see some Hanukah decorations for the holidays. Would love to try the metallic tape.

    I enjoyed the tutorial. Great idea to use a panel for the table runner. Great metallic bias!

    Great panel fabric for the holiday table runner. The metallic bias tape makes the fabrics “pop!”

    I’m so happy to see the Festival of Lights table runner panel! Just in time to make as a holiday gift for my precious sister-in-law. Thank you!

    I like the look of the bias tape on the table runner.

    At first glance I was really happy to see this project, even though I’m not a quilter… but then I noticed the mis-placement of the letters on the dreidels on the runner (they’re in the wrong order!) And I also wondered whether there might be a similar project to make at Pesach/Passover? A table runner with a Pesach theme would be much nicer and more useful I think…

    The Festival of Lights Table Runner Tutorial is easy to understand & shows how quickly that one can make a table runner.

    The Festival of Lights Table Runner is so easy to make as it uses a pre-printed panel. Also, I am so happy that Nancy Zieman Productions are doing something Judaic for Hanukah as most companies do mostly Christmas based projects around this time of year. I am a quilter and can do a project of almost any challenge level, but with my list of so many projects to complete it is so nice to have a quick project to complete in between the more complex ones. Thanks again for remembering us Jewish quilters.
