Happy July 4

I finished the hand quilting on this table runner just in time for the 4th of July holiday. I used a clamshell design from end to end on this runner. It shows up great on the red especially. The fabrics were fat quarters I picked up a Fat Quarter Frenzy at the Pincushion here in Mitchell. I loved the little children in the print.

This runner is made from a Pieced Tree pattern called Sassy Strips. Those are the little laminated cards with fun table runner patterns called "Tiny Ones" on their website. My dining table is long but this one can be adapted to a smaller table by just leaving out some of the sections in the pattern. I have about a dozen of these little cards for different shapes and sizes and designs of table runners. Some have lots of small pieces, but most are definitely easy enough for beginners, but produce such fun results that anyone will be happy with them. I've had some fun making these with seasonal fabrics.
