    Cool A bit of purple and green.....

    The dark purple and the green bits were given to me half finished and I added some of my stash to make this table runner. Although I didn't think purple and green fitted together so much, I must say I think it doesn't look too bad Thanks for looking!

    My daughters have always loved purple and green--complementary colors-- together. It turned out great!

    It looks great and would match my kitchen perfectly :-) I have purple and green everywhere purple is my favorite color and green is my second favorite.

    Great table runner. Amazing how much pizzazz that decorative stitch gives it. Just the right finishing touch.

    the white trim or stitching really sets it off.

    Thanks for the compliment!!! It's a built-in stitch on my machine, it hasn't got many but the ones it's got are quite nice and I like to use them if possible.

    very nice. Am working on a purple and green quilt now. Challenged by photo posts, but maybe will get a grandson, age 12 to help me post it. Smiling.
