    This is for my sister - I learned many new things: how to mark and quilt a "motif" and how to miter binding with "other than 90 degrees" corners. Also it was the first time I've used decorative stitching in the ditch. There are TONS of mistakes. But she will love it - blue and yellow are the only colors in her whole house and her table is dark brown. All fabs came from my stash.

    How did you mark your motif design? Was is done FMQ? I"M SO SCARED OF FMQ, and I just bought my FMQ foot...too scared to use it! I love your runner...I made one as well and it was so easy, but there's no design in the middle :(

    What pattern is this? I had printed this pattern and purchased material a few days ago, and now I can't find my pattern.
    I love your colors, this is pretty!!

    It's the french braid pattern - found it online at http://quiltbug.com/free/table-topper.htm

    I marked the motif by tracing a design from a FMQ book (had to enlarge it on my scanner) using Golden Threads tissue paper - I'm too new (and chicken!) to FM this on my own!

    Thanks everybody for the kind comments
