    I just finished this tablerunner for a commissioned piece for the diabetic children's silent auction. The lady who bought one from last year wanted one done in her colors of her living room and adjacent dining room to fit her table size. I have never seen her home.

    So here it is. I sure hope she likes it. Her leather couch and carpeting are peach, the high back chairs are dark green with accents in the room of sky blue and burgandy. I hope I got it right. I had to buy these fabrics, I didn't have anything remotely like what she wanted when I searched my stash.

    Hi craftybear. No I sure didn't, this is a pattern I bought with a fabric kit from connecting threads. The kit is way different in colorways, I can tell you that! They have just the pattern on sale for I think 40 percent off now. A good savings. Thanks for asking.

    Beautiful! Love the color combo. I may have to look that pattern up at Connecting Threads to see if they still have it.

    It is in the sale patterns kittenquilts... I will say this. I changed it up a little to make it the size I needed. The center is the pretty much the same though.

    I changed the construction up too. They say to cut the square into a rectangle and then sew the seams. I marked down the center of the squares and then sewed on either side of the line a scant quarter inch and then cut it apart. A little easier to handle the bias that way.
