TABLE RUNNER

I was asked if I would make a long mat for a small table. The recipient is artistic so would be inclined to like something made by the 15 minutes play method. This has more quilting than I normally do and didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would although piecing the mat took a while. I used my new found technique of paper piecing for the triangles.

Hello Auntie Em. The way of paper piecing is not new, just new to me. Victoria has a tutorial in her blog here

Thanks so much, ladies, for all your lovely comments.
