Long Table Runner

Finished my long table runner made with 2.5″ strips I cut from a Connecting Threads Hanami FQ pack. Measures 85″ by 16″.

I wanted it to fall over each end of my dining room table. The inner border is 1″ strips cut from one of the fabrics. The outer border and binding are from some navy yardage I had in my stash. It’s backed with 7 FQ leftover fabrics. I may have big enough pieces left to make some matching napkins. Turned out exactly how I had it pictured.

Finished at Last

Northern Lights wall hanging finished at last. This kit was purchased at the quilt shop in Juneau in June 2013 on my cruise to Alaska with my grandson. The top was finished right away but it’s taken me all this time to get up the courage to quilt the lights. I used nylon invisible thread and it worked wonderfully. So glad it’s done. 34″ x 25″

This shows the quilting better.
