This is a tablerunner I made for my mother-in-law's birthday in March, 2010. I used Electric Quilt to help me plan this out. I did not purchase any fabrics for this quilt. I made it entirely with fabrics already on hand.
I machine pieced and quilted this one. Start-to-finish I think it took me about a week to make this. I procrastinated getting this going, mainly because I was working on my friend's sailboat quilt, so I was kind of in marathon mode when I made this.
If I decide to make another one of these, I would like to make it a little longer. I also think I would change the yellow pieced border to one that is not pieced. That would make it a little quicker to put together, and I don't think the pieced border is necessary to the overall design anyways. This tablerunner would look good in many different colorways, and might make nice gifts for the holidays. I just might make a few more!
