A Quick Little Tablerunner

I'll ease up on the ruffles for a bit! I do have one or two more bags that I want to make, so will probably be showing more soon. I am thinking Kaffe Fasset fabrics for one. On http://www.modabakeshop.com/ there is a "recipe" for making the little ruffle quilt and you might want to check that out. I also want to do two more of those later on. In their directions you do all the piecing, then the layering, the quilting and after that is all done the ruffles are sewn on and it is bound. With the gathering foot, the ruffles are a breeze. And it's so fun to see them fly out from behind your needle

Here is a tablerunner that I found the how-to on the internet (so much great stuff out there!) and it said it was quick. It is. I just quickly picked out some fabric and put it together. It looks really nice on the chest in my dining area. (Click to enlarge)

Delightful table runner! The fabric choices actually make it look a bit more complex than it is...and your quilting is great! Sometimes the fast/quick projects are those we still enjoy when they are done...no agony...no hair-pulling! ;-)

What a lovely table runner. And yes, I would agree with Leslie that your quilting in the center is just wonderful:)
