Recently I posted about the Focal Point Table Runner designed by Joanne Kerton and published in the June 2016 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. Well, since then, I was checking out the wedding registry of my nephew for his wedding coming up in June and found that they are using grey as a basic color in their color scheme.
Additionally, I found out (sadly) that The Quilted Hill Quilt Shop in Yamhill, OR is going out of business. Since I have been there several times, I knew what fabric I wanted to buy in order to make the table runner for a wedding gift.
On my visit to the shop, I snapped a couple pictures.

I thought this fabric would be perfect for the table runner. It's "Burlap" by Dover Hill for Benartex and it comes in several colors. As you can see, I selected the grey and yellow pattern to use and bought fabric to make 2 table runners. One will be the wedding gift. I'm not sure yet which one I will give them - the one with the yellow accent or the aqua accent.
This morning I was up early, so I decided to cut the pieces needed (except for the border and binding). Yesterday I printed out the paper pieces, so I'm all ready to start!
I've been doing a lot of paper piecing with the Dear Jane quilt, so I hope this will be somewhat easy for me to follow, although the during the piecing of the blocks I will need to be very careful that I put the colors in the correct place. Wish me luck!
