This little table runner was a special request by my mom as a thank you gift for a friend. Mom picked out the focus fabric and overall color scheme and I designed the rest, using the “Square-in-a-Square” ruler/technique. (BTW – this was my first time using the “Square-in-a-Square” – not sure how much I’ll use that ruler… it’s a real super time saver, BUT it uses tons of fabric & leaves loads of odd scraps, which could be avoided by more traditional techniques.)
The warm, Tuscan-feel fabrics are from South Sea Imports’ “First Course” line and feature salads – our friend is known for her salads – and neat bottles of olive oils and such. I did simple in the ditch quilting following the “swirls” and some of the stripes in the borders with invisible thread (so no one could see where I messed up LOL). Hope she likes it!
