I bought a tin container of 20 different quarter flats from JoAnn Fabrics.  Normally priced @ $40, marked down to $8.  Out of the 20 in the tin, 6 of them I fell in love with.  This was inspiration I needed to paint my living room and dining room these colors.

I finally got around to making a table runner for the dining room table.  Anything to cover up the hand-me-down table that I hope to replace someday.  I have 18 panels. I repeated the same color pattern 3 times in sizes that mirror the halves.  I backed it with brown fabric that I added interfacing to.  After looking at it, I would like to add beaded fringe to ends.  This will help keep the sides down.







Thanks for looking! Smiley
