This backing toile was a small piece of fabric that I found at an estate sale recently.
A blogging friend of mine, Joanne Kerton, has a table runner pattern published in the June, 2016 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. Congratulations, Joanne!! The table runner is amazing and is paper pieced. Now that I have had a lot more practice with PPing, I think I'll give this a try, since I love to have different table runners on hand for each season.
It shows three table runners made exactly the same way, but using different color fabrics for very different looks. I hope they aren't too hard. Joanne has been designing quilt patterns for a while now and she has hit the big time with this one in a magazine!
Here's what the cover of the magazine looks like in case you are interested in buying it.
Another bonus for me is the article about T-shirt quilts. I just agreed to make one for my niece - and I've never done it before.
