    Barbm inspired me with her table runners. So I just finished two table runners for gifts. The brown and amber table runner I made for my son and DDIL. It is 80 x 18 nches for their 90 inch new dining room table.
    The red table & white table runner I will post after this because you can only post 3 pictures at a time. It is smaller 12 x 36 inches I made for my DH's niece for their new house. I did free form machine quilting on both of them, hope you can see it ok. Made a couple of mistakes but I still like them.

    Here is a close up so you can see the fabric.

    Ok here is the red one. I like the quilting on this one because it reminds me of red work quilting.

    Here is the red one I made for my DH's niece.

    Very nice work. I LOVE seeing finished pieces. I may actually get off my chair and move over to the sewing machine and fire it up!

    I love them- very nice quilt job!

    I guess they were a hit at DD's shower. I've been asked to make a bunch more for FDIL's shower at end of July. Right after I finish my blocks for the B&W swap. (Acutally I'm glad I made one for me, it is an easy pattern and fun to do.)

    Keep up the good work!
