Oblong Folded Centerpiece!

 My dining room sideboard needs a runner of some sort!  I thought the oblong folded centerpiece would be the perfect thing for it.
I chose my ten fat quarters and them commenced cutting and ironing a million folded rectangles.  I burnt my poor fingers until my thumb felt well roasted from the steam.  Necessity is the Mother of Invention.  I discovered that I could fold them and secure them with a pin at the corner and then iron them down with no hands holding the fabric.  It works like a champ.
 Here you can see row two completed.
I have stitched row three and pinned row four.  I will post updates later this week.  I hope you are all having a good week with lots of quality time spent at your machines!
