Quilted Table Runner Inspired By Macrame

Finally…

I get to show you. No more teasing. No more showing you parts of photos. 😀

This was my inspiration.

A placemat, candle ring and floral holder. In Forest Green macrame cord. I can’t even remember when I made them. I think around the time I retired five years ago. Within that first six months when I was going crazy trying to stay busy and figuring out what to do with the rest of my life.

I kept them on my work table the whole time I was making the table runner. I even used the mat to determine the spacing for the strips on the back.

Love the versatility of this mini quilt. Two-sided table runner.

Or as a wall hanging.

My loopy swirls on the green border came out so-so. I need to practice more.

Well, that’s my Big Reveal. Hope you enjoyed the mystery of it all. 😀

    Slept late, just up. I am working on something “old” and not sure where I am going with it. But I will let it speak to me and tell me what it wants to be. Photos soon.
