table runner for Irena

My friend Irena has done some house refurbishing and asked me if I could make her a table runner. So last week we got the colors sorted, I bought some fat quarters by Moda Fabrics and found a nice pattern on the web by Modify Tradition. This is how my design wall looked earlier this week :

I am preparing a Dresden Plate design for patchwork classes and shall make a pillow cover out of it. Following the finished table runner, size 21″ x 36″ :

Something for the belly – I have opened the jam making season with medlar or loquat and the first apricots :

And something for the eye – my flowering orchids :

Happy sewing, thanks for stopping and till next time,

    I really like the colors you chose for Irena’s table runner. And those orchids are so lovely.
