My sister has very different taste than I do. It was hard to think of what to give her for her birthday. I thought a table runner was generic enough that I could make and figure out what fabrics she would love. I plan on giving her this tomorrow when I take her to lunch at MiMi's.

I found the black and white GNC fabric first and then ordered a jelly roll of moda's Full Circle. It worked out great together, I think.

I hope she likes it. She wears these colors often enough together.

Thanks girls! I recieved a really cute table runner as part of the charity silent auction and there was one she "loved" in the mix of it. I thought well, I could make her one in these colors. And there you have it, the whole story. LOL!
