Table Runner Pieced
I got the table runner pieced together this afternoon. It was a precision job all right and I'd give myself about 75% at best. The hardest part was putting the points on the end. The borders were added first and trying to perfectly match that tiny yellow line on an angle was impossible for me. I basted it first and still had to rip back a couple of times. It's far from perfect but not bad for a wonky quilter. I think I'll go with the yellow binding. At first I thought the light blue would be better to tie in the middle blue but in the end yellow looks better. Doing it again I'd be tempted to use orange instead of the light blue. It's about 18x76 inches in size. There is a pattern for matching napkins but I don't have enough blue or ambition.
