24 Jul An Elegant Celebration
I love the idea of having a table runner you can pull out for special occasions. I made the bright version as a class sample and have wanted to make another, more elegant, version. Besides, working with free form bias is too much fun to stop at one!
For the elegant version, I used a Fairy Frost as the background and a great Lonni Rossi print for the border. I believe the dark red I used for the bias is a Nancy Halvorsen print from a few years ago, but I’m not sure since it was a fat quarter without selvage.
Keen observers will notice that I did not use any triangles for the confetti shapes in the new version. They just didn’t seem to suit the more elegant style.
If you’d like to see larger pictures of these runners, check out my Flickr photostream.
Suzanne Marshall will be the guest speaker at our QU dinner on Saturday night. I admire her applique so much! I’m looking forward to hearing her talk and to spending a fun evening with quilty friends.
