Leftovers Are Awesome!

Leftovers=table-runner!
I used the leftovers from my Square City top (see previous post) for this table runner!

Runner
I almost made placemats, but I just loved how all the blocks looked smashed up together!

backing/binding of runner
I used a strong black and white print for the backing (Bon Viant I think) and some Alexander Henry Heather for the binding!

I'll be listing this in my etsy shop soon!  I'm still debating how I'm going to quilt the Square City top.  I think I know the style of quilting, but the thread color is giving me issues.  I'm almost leaning toward quilting it with invisible thread, but I can't commit right now. :)

it looks great. :) really.

(and if you use the lightweight 50 weight thread it won't show too much... I think I'd go with a cream)

i haven't used invisible thread before so i can't give a preference. it is a very pretty table runner though, i love it! such great colors!
