Stacks table runner

_DSC0592 I made this table runner for Ellison Lane’s Modern Mini Quilt Challenge. A first for me! I love how open this challenge is–entries just have to be not too big or not too small. I was excited to try out a palette and style that I am thinking of for a baby quilt. I threw in some neutrals between the brights so the design wouldn’t be overwhelming. For the binding, I wanted something other than the white (Kona Bone), but I didn’t want to create a strong frame–so I opted for Kona Ash, which is a nice soft gray. The cool gray offsets the warm colors in the design, which I think strikes a nice balance.  The table runner is in my Etsy shop!

Check out the other entries in the challenge–there is some really lovely work. I especially like the entries from Joanna at Shape Moth, Laura from x.o, and Kim and Windsor and Main. Next up for me is a striped play mat with wool batting that I am really looking forward to getting started.

I am linking up with Jennifer’s Modern Mini Challenge!
