Finished for Friday: Monster Movie Table Runner

I finished my monster table runner!  I put it on my little coffee table in the family room.  I still have some of the poster fabric left over and Jungle Boy tells me that I should make some placemats out of it.  Maybe next year.  I'm on to other projects now.

I used a nice ghastly green for the inner border and sashing strips and a black spiderweb fabric for the outer border.  I did meander quilting all over with monofiliment.  I found the cute bowl at a thrift store a few years ago.

This will add to my cozy setting where I watch my old monster movies throughout the month of October.  They're silly and campy and I love them. 

Linking up today with Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

Tomorrow I will post the final set of instructions in my series on UFO management.  Let me know if you're implementing the program yourself!

Harry Potter quilt block for today: the Marauder's Map!

Beneath it is a book with a tiny broom - probably "Quidditch Through the Ages."  The map fabric is available on  I love how the piecing makes it look like it's unfolded.

Have a great weekend.  Are you getting ready for Halloween?

This is cool. I would love to see your Sashiko samples. BTW you are a no reply blogger. I would highly recommend changing that so other bloggers can reply to your comments.

Love the way you pieced the map block! It looks very realistic.

Your spooky movie table runner is perfect for October, but I know what you mean about already moving on. It's easy to find new projects while working on a current one!

This turned out great! Sometimes "campy" is exactly what you need!
