Blogger's Quilt Festival
The tale of two table runners -
My brother's youngest son was getting married last fall, so we took the easy route and purchased a gift from their registry list. Then my feeling of guilt took over, as I usually make my gifts. Since I didn't know his bride-to-be, I decided to make a table runner. (The picture shows both sides) One side is Christmas and the other is made from some grays and neutrals that I picked up at a quilt show in Hershey PA last summer. I had fun quilting feathers in the large triangle spaces.
I liked the results so much that I made the second table runner with the rest of the fabrics, along with a few from my stash just for me! The second runner is paper pieced and was a bonus pattern from Quiltmaker magazine.
