Well you do get a lot of good pratice doing table runners, and they are so quick to finish. This one is the 3rd one for my Mum in Law's 70th Birthday. All table runners that I made for her are all made from the Martinque fabrics by Moda.
The whole top is made from 2" squares, which was a pain but it makes it easier when it comes to quilting. I had a lot of fun practicing my circles, swirl thingys.
