Warp and Weft Sewing Society: Running with Squares

 When Esmari from Warp and Weft sent me fabric, she included a roll of 10"squares.  Since I was in table runner mode and really having fun with matchstick quilting, I took several of the squares and cut them into 3" squares and just had some fun sewing them altogether.  Then I randomly separated the patchwork with strips of linen and put the whole shebang together.

The back came together happily with a funky fat quarter, some more linen, some scraps from a pillow project and some lovely chambray shirting.  And that is the loft ladder in the barn just so you know.

 This runner measures 13.5" by 44" so it would work on a long table just fine.  Sometimes runners seem a bit undersized for long tables.  This one is not!

The quilting is dense, straight lines, matchstick style in Aurifil 50 wt in #2326  Sand.  It is a lovely colour.  Just enough of a contrast with the linen but not too much.
