WIP #4

Another WIP (works in progress) finished!

Am I running low yet? Nope!

I had a bag full of 9 patches  - made out of

strips that were 1 1/2" wide.  

Not knowing what I wanted to do with them

exactly; so they were put away.

So, they came out of the WIP draw and I

thought that I would make a table runner out

of them.

                         Table runner is 30" x 18 1/2"

I really like the fabric but don't know the

manufacturer, as I bought them as Fat

Quarters. The look of it reminds me of a

Romantic Cottage style.

I wanted to try something new, so I decided

to use a decorative stitch around the sashing.

I think that it gives it a nice touch. The quilting

is just a plain cross hatch.

 The back of the table runner is a solid olive

green but with the quilting in a cranberry color

it has a nice contrast and the runner now can

be reversible. 

We have all these pretty decorative stitches

built in our machines and they should be 

used more. Don't you think?  

I had lots more 9 patches left, so I made 

some matching mats.  Mats are 10 1/2" x 13 1/2" each.
