Finished table runner
I finished this table runner as a commission, to be given as a housewarming gift to a couple with a taste for contemporary art and furniture. Though I can't say I'm crazy about the gray on my lighter table, I think it will be stunning on their long black dining table!
The asymmetrical design has one large inset circle of red patchwork in the exact center of the piece, with smaller inset circles on one side and just the simple gray patchwork on the other.
I'm so glad I simplified the quilting around the circles.
The scrappy back has a single column of red rectangles. A double row of red hand stitches runs horizontally and vertically.
I'm also making a dozen napkins to go with the runner.
