Quilted Table Runners

With so many fantastic fabrics out there, I had to find another way to use them besides in purses and quilts . . . so enter table runners: I actually quilted 3 of these - 2 as presents for Mother's Day and 1 for myself! ;)

And this one showcases this fabric I had dreams about I loved it so much. Unfortunately, this table runner gave me lots of problems because it didn't fit where I wanted it once I finished. So sad. So instead of finding a new spot to use it, I took the majority of it apart and refashioned it to a size that would work. Lots of frustrating moments with this project, but I like the way it turned out!

Both are beautiful table runners! I, too, have some "flag" fabric (a whole bolt). I've given gifts and such and still have more. I once made a pillow and placed a vet photo in the middle of it, covered that with a thick clear plastic that could be removed for laundry and gave it to his wife after his funeral.
