2013-31: Xmas Table Runner

Xmas Table RunnerThis simple table runner was made from the end of a bolt of printed placemats.  The fabric piece had half of three placemats.  I decided to even up the ends of two of them and trim the third half placemat to make a center slice that when added to the other two would make a long placemat that would become a table runner.

If you look closely in this next photo, you will be able to pick out the seam lines.  The strong rectangular visual line of created by the ivy wreath pulls your eye to the outside of the table runner while the diagonal quilting lines in the gold thread takes your focus away from the vertical piecing lines.  It is hard to find them!  Can you see the piecing lines?
