Table runners for Cancer fundraising.

My friend Louise is passionate about raising funds for the Cancer Council, as she has lost several friends to the disease.  She had a fundraising afternoon tea party last year which was so successful she decided to have another one this year.  I offered to make some patchwork items for her to raffle or auction to help make some more money.  I made a pink table runner and a smaller blue one.  Both were made using the "Ten Minute Table runner" technique.   As it was the first time I had tried this, it took a bit longer than ten minutes for the first one (the pink runner), but I can see when you've made a few of them, it probably would take less than 20 minutes to make one!

They didn't take long to go!
