    Using up stash, making some bed-runners

    Here are two bedrunners I've made recently.
    One, I call "Coconut Cream Pie." My husband called it the Tan Rainbow. I had a drawer full of just white, ivory, and tan fabrics left over from bigger projects. So I auditioned the fabrics until I had a nice blend of seven fabrics ranging from light to dark. In the photo, I have placed it on an orange lap quilt just for contrast - otherwise it would have been harder to see against the beige carpet. Contemporary looking.

    The second, I call "Brooke's Star" I picked out two complimentary blocks from two different sources and made this runner. I've had the blue floral sashing fabric (a little less than 1/2 yard)for a few years, so finally put all of it to good use. The light blue fabric was a FQ, and I used up all of that too. I like how it looks classic, yet fresh.

    These are just lovely! Superb use of 'stash'.

    You just lay them across the foot of a bed or even over the pillows for decoration against a simple bedspread. Or these can be used as table runners too.

    They're both beautiful, but find the tan one intriguing. Not sure I'd make one, but would enjoy hearing how you plan it out.

    I love coconut cream pie and to see it in your bed runner, makes it just wonderful. A great job. I think I have that pattern somewhere, and would love to do it like yours.
