Look what I finished. I finally cut into my Cherrywood fabrics and made a runner using a Kathie Alyce pattern and template. It's hard to tell in my photos but the wall color is a pale lime, spring green. I LOVE it! It's so clean, fresh, and bright.If you have never had any Cherrywood hand-dyed fabrics, you should consider getting some. They cost more than a few pennies but, my gosh, the colors are rich and gorgeous.
This was a fun and easy pattern to 'whip up'. Using the template, and following Kathie's directions, it was easy to get the curves to go together. I have wanted to do some quilting like this. All lines. I followed the curves in the pattern and just 'eyeballed' each row of stitches. No marking. I am really kind of a lazy quilter. But I do love how this turned out, and I'm thrilled with it in my front hall. So mod in my frumpy old house, lol.
