This is my first time posting a project, hi!  Grin

looking for inspiration/motivation.  Thought I'd post some photos of a quilted table runner I made 2 years ago now  Shocked for MIL's b-day.  I made up the pattern using the paper panache style.  Thanks for looking!

I think I've seen this style before for paper-piecing, but I didn't know what it was called. Enlightenment! Smiley Your table runner is lovely. It makes me want to try making another paper-pieced quilt.

That looks awesome. Seconding lemadrid's comment though, I'd love to be able to actually SEE the quilt, i.e. an overview shot, if possible Smiley (and it seems the camera was set to macro when these pics were taken?)
These are such teaser photos, I'm daydreaming of how inspiring it would be if I just got to see it properly Cheesy You should definetly make more stuff like this! Wink

WOW this is awesome!
