Piano Key tablerunners

  Two versions of the Piano Keys table runners that came from the pattern by Connie at Freemotion by the River.    The link will take you to her post and tutorial.
Note that she added information on her Saturday post for the tutorial....and another version!

Bold and blue!  This one was done with 2 1/2" strips by the pattern.  I used a variety of batik precuts that were leftover from several projects.   And more leftovers for the binding....just as long as it was mainly dark blue.  This one is 18" by 42".

    The floral version.....spring has arrived.  What can I say....this layout is the result of a happy mistake.  I ended up with the exact same fabric on  one end and decided to disguise it by putting the background together in the center.

   Finished size for this one is 18" by 32" because I used 2" strips from the stash in place of the 2 1/2" strips.
   I really enjoy the light feel of Spring in this one.  Quilted with feathers in the center and swirls in the floral prints.

  My favorite is easy to pick. :)

  Yet, the blue is so soothing.

I hope I inspired you to get the pattern and spend an afternoon making a runner.....surely you need a small gift to share.  Thanks, again to Connie for sharing her pattern.

Both are beautiful! I also am drawn to the floral prints. Your quilting really enhances it.

They are both just wonderful, as much as I love blue the floral captures me. I must make one of these and like the 2" strip size.

Wow, that quilting makes them even more gorgeous, the floral one is stunning.

Wow Debbie! I love both of them and the feather quilting adds so much! I'm going to have to try that! What you can do with florals is always awesome! Thanks for sharing your table runners and the shout-out!

Both are beautiful, but I think I like the "happy mistake" best. It shows off the feathers so well with the pretty florals surrounding them. : )
