Red Flannel Pantry Blog’s Modern Table Runner

I’ve not been drawn to making a table runner.

Until now.

Take a look at Red Flannel Pantry Blog’s hostess gift for the family who will host the family’s daughter (in Ireland, lucky girl) for a semester:  hometown gifts for out-of-town hosts | red flannel pantry.

And what a terrific gift!

I can see myself making a table runner like this one…

Yes I can.

I would choose different colors–though I LOVE these colors together.  They just would not go in my house.  They might go in someone else’s though–as a gift.

This table runner lies in the “modern” quilt movement:  bits of piecing combined with big sections of plain fabric that can showcase quilting.

If I could start all over, I would move in this “modern” direction:  spare lines, different colors than I’ve surrounded myself with my whole life, pottery, candles, woven rugs, simple, simple, simple.

I do love red and green though…

And blues and oranges and reds…

I am a true Pisces it seems…
