I am going to a post-wedding shower on Saturday for my newly-married daughter, Susie. She requested two runners (the first and last), and I added the one in the middle.
This first one is a new technique for me...curved seams. I made the center panel one WOF and covered it with selvages. Then I followed the instructions on Red Pepper Quilts blog for curved seams. I made the curves gentle to see if it would work for me. It did. I even did the quilting a little outside of my comfort zone. It measures 12" x 42".
I think I used 6" wide for the selvage and white layers and 9" for the black, then trimmed it to be 12" x 42". That is for Ruth.
This one measures 18" x 23". I think the colors look like camouflage. Fitting for her, I think.
This one measures 16" square, and is loosely based on a baby quilt I pinned.
