This table runner is my second project from the inspiring pages of this book. The simple zig zag design made by the patchwork, caught my eye and I was enticed to try it. Unfortunately, I missed the mark when choosing my fabrics. Due to the 'busyness' of the three prints I chose, you can't see the zig zag as clearly. Solids would work better.
For the flip side, I used this lovely Moda print which my sweet friend, Nicolette sent me. I had been waiting for just the right project for it and this is it. I really feel like this table runner is reversible because of this gorgeous print.
Here it is, at home on the top of my antique china hutch.
I'm surprised just how much I'm enjoying using linen in patchwork projects. The linen I'm currently using is a coarse weave, so it adds contrast to the smooth texture of the quilting cotton. It happened to be a lucky find at the thrift store and I'm soon going to be out of it. I haven't found 100% linen at my local fabric store. Anyone have a favourite place to buy linen?
