I happily started making improvisational blocks for a table runner for my friend's new custom-made modern table. I quickly realized that making the blocks was the easy part; I found it a little tricky to keep something that long and skinny straight and true. After experimenting with different "fillers," all of which looked too puffy and ruined the drape, I decided to back the pieced top with another piece of solid white cotton.

I quilted it lightly "in the ditch" to keep it pretty clean and did a simple turned-under hem around.

Although it looks a little askew in this picture, it actually is quite even:

That's really pretty.  I like the clean lines and the white sashing really makes the colors pop.

It's beautiful!  The last one I made went missing at my parent's house.  Maybe I should go look for it.  I love the colors you used!!
