Autumn runner: Gifted

Well.  I know it is still the Christmas season but what are you going to do when your mother says, "I don't have a table runner in fall colours."  That sounds like a perfect hint for a Christmas make.  I used up a lot of scraps on this one.  Fall colours and linen scraps in random offset strips, 5" wide.  I actually make all the strip sets at a guild sew in on my featherweight and then finished the rest at home on my Janome. I quilted it densely with an Aurifil 40 weight in a lovely linen tone.  I used Aurifil 50 wt in cream in the bobbin.  The slightly heavier Aurifil gives a lovely texture.  The runner is bound in a medium olive green Grunge by Moda.  So much fun.  Gifted.  And she likes it!
