EB Craft Swap

Last month I joined up for the EB Sewing Swap. Each person had to request 3 items and there partner got to make any one item. My swapee was Lisa, I actually requested her based on her likes and dislikes and colour choices. Lisa said she would like rectangle place mats or a boys DS holder or anything boyish or a table runner. Fave colours pink, white and aqua. Easy.
I decided to make a table runner, and bar the homespun everything was from my stash. I used some Amy Butler Lotus, Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy and a variety of pink and white spots from Michael Miller, Windham Fabrics and some Fat Flats from Spotlight. Teamed up with a pink watermelon homespun, I bought all that they had left on the bolt so about 4 metres, Cate has bed sheets and a pillow case in this colour, delish!
Top is pieced with wonky strips alternating between the prints. Sandwiched with pellum wadding and quilted using a variety of decorative stitches. I used white 100% cotton in the bobbin and the quilting stitches look fantastic from the back, I think it could be used either side up.
Measuring 16" x 34", I hope Lisa likes it, cos I love it!! I also included some cherry FQ's and a homemade card.
