Open Shells Table RunnerDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This table runner is 6 feet long and starts at the center. Work one end until you reach half the overall length you want it to be, then turn it around and start from the bottom and work the other end to match. It is easy to make but a large project that you want to plan ahead with. I worked 5 - 10 rows per day for about 6 weeks.
