Tablerunner - Completed!

I started a new table runner after I sold the last one in my Etsy store. I finished it after work tonight. I made this one a bit wider and it came in a few inches shorter. This one is done using the envelope method. So, no binding needed. You simply layer the top, bottom and batting; sew around most of the edge and then turn it right side out. Fold in the unfinished edge, iron, then topstitch around the entire thing. You can't tell which edge was not sewn first. Then I quilted in the ditch and embellished a bit with a leaf stitch on my machine. Green isn't my first color choice most days, but with the four patch blocks I had made for the center, it was perfect.

The four patches are made with a charm pack from Moda. Apparently I have tossed the label so I don't know the collection name. The sections dividing the four patches is a bit of a Moda layer cake from the Tranquility by Sandy Gervais line.

Please, ooh and ahh to your heart's content. Ha ha.

In other news Ryan over at I'm Just A Guy Who Quilts is having a cool Give-A-way. He has a a 2010 Sewing Day to Day Calendar with over 100 projects. I entered.
