My parents were travelling out west last year and bought me a table runner kit for Christmas. I finally got around to putting it together. I'd never used a kit before and wasn't sure what to expect. Basically it came with all the fabric I needed and the applique was pre-traced, but otherwise it was just like making a normal quilt - I still had to cut everything to measure, cut out the applique and sew it on, piece the top, and do the actual quilting and binding.

Did you have to applique all of the back and white pieces? This is really striking!  I have never tried a kit, but if they are like this one, I need to give it a go!

beautiful job!!

Did you have to applique all of the back and white pieces?

There's two layers to the applique - first there's just a white orca, and then the black orca-with-strategically-placed-holes got placed on top of the white one. The black one was done as one piece, believe it or not - it's held together by the tiniest bits of fabric in some places.

But yes, I did have to go around all the edges on the black one.

This is absolutely gorgeous!  For a table runner, what kind of batting did you use?  I'm assuming a very thin one? Nice job!
