I had Saturday and Sunday off this week and got this table runner finished. I had purchased this remnant of border fabric at Country Cloth in Altaville over a year ago, not knowing what to do with it, but loving this Oriental print. It is called Kingyo, from Red Rooster.
Later I decided to make a table runner for my friend Cherie, who has a koi pond. I cut the fabric and lined it up, hoping to get 4 patch posey blocks, but these turned out to be only slightly effective. I do like the end result, however.
I put it on my wall to photograph it and started to think it looks real nice there....
I used a black meandering stitch in the ditch around each block, then did an ecru simple leaf design in the center of each. I used Echo Shell for the border.
For the binding I used a coordinated floral from the same collection that I found on E-Bay. I have several yards of this beautiful fabric.
This is my largest FMQ piece so far, following Peter's Tee Shirt Quilt
