This was a strange week. I did not really feel like sewing at all, I actually did not use my machine even once this week. I'm thinking a pretty bad sore throat, non-stop heat and high humidity, plus getting three little people ready for school might have been the cause.
Well, I didn't not sew completely, though. I did a little bit of hand sewing which meant that I finally finished a new table runner for our dining table.
I usually attach binding to whatever project I'm working on by machine, but this runner was special enough to do it by hand.
This table runner is 100% inspired by Leanne's gorgeous pillow. Leanne is my hero when it comes to using solids, she has such a keen eye for combining colors to achieve the most striking effect.
I used all Konas in shades of green and yellow to make my simple improv pieced rectangles. The background color is Kona white.
I then bound it using yet another Kona - this time my all time favorite Kona Ash with a little piece of Kona Lime for some added interest.
Finished size of the runner is 18" x 41".
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana
