I just finished piecing this table runner. Tomorrow hopefully I can get it quilted and the binding on. I need to have it finished for Saturday's Christmas party. It's for my best friend Jan who is coming to spend the weekend.
The pattern is from Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day Lover's Knot Quilt. It is strip piecing. For me, I found that I really had to concentrate. It took me three starts before I finally figured it out. But part of my problem was my lights, mediums, and darks. There's those values again. I was using them in a different order to get the black fabric where I wanted it. I've said it before patterns are only suggestions! Once I set up a chart on each page of the instructions, I was set and got the top put together in 2 days.
The fabrics are from Robert Kaufman's Holiday Flourish collection. There is a lot of metallic in the fabric, but I love the look. Actually Jan picked out the fabric. She had asked for a table runner for her birthday present. This is actually a belated birthday present.
Just a little note: Jan is the receipient of the Elvis quilt that you can find in my gallery. Her Christmas present this year is 2 (not 1, but 2) cardboard stand ups of Elvis!
