The inspiration for this table runner came from the red fabric which is from the Artful Home fabric line. I had made window valances for my kitchen over the summer and had about a half of yard left over. I raided my scrap bags for coordinating colors in lime, turquoise and browns. I did not want it to look like a Holiday accent so I added lots of turquoise and brown.
I decided to include a Star of Virginia in the middle to balance everything and add a classic element to the random patchwork design. I used straight line quilting at various angles for a modern flair.
Backed with Greenfield Hill and bound in a bold black and white. This table runner will add a nice touch to my antique sideboard in the dining area.
