About 2.5 years ago I purchased 3 FQ sized pre-printed whole-cloth panels to make a QAYG table runner with.
One year ago - oops, upon checking, it was actually Two years ago that I quilted the panels, trimmed them and then set to putting on cover strips over the seams and the binding. I didn't think about the cover strip size, I just cut it a 2.5in and attached it. I was so unhappy with the appearance of the cover strips and how they seemed to overtake the quilt, that I put the whole thing aside in disgust.
Last December, I set to unpicking the cover strips and the partially sewn binding. Unpicking was all I achieved. I was determined that during this month of January I would get my runner finished. I re-cut the cover strips to finish at the same width as the binding and then attached them.

I am so happy now with my completed project, that I am wondering why I didn't fix it up sooner. For such a small project, it seemed to cause me a bit of grief for a while.
There's no mistaking the wonderful feeling, my first completed or "done-done" project for 2015.
