My Quilted Table Runner :)

My mom's birthday is coming up at the end of June, and I've been searching all over for the perfect fabric to make her something (thinking table runner?  Or maybe a Kitchen Aid cover?  I better figure that out!).

She really loves depression era prints and I found the perfect one!  Robert Kaufman's Lazy Daisy Baskets 2!  She is going to LOVE it!

I made a quilted table runner about a month ago for a co-workers birthday.  I was so happy with how it turned out!!! 

I absolutely LOVE paper piecing.  I used a the pattern for the Ohio Star from the book, 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars.  There are a lot of pieces involved, but the result was totally worth it!  :)

I decided to use three different Batik fabrics because that is what my coworker really loves.  I used Kona White for the rest so that I wasn't taking away from the beauty of the stars :)

I also took the time to hand sew my binding (I hate hand sewing!) I think it was definitely worth it though, because I love the way it looks!  I also did my first mitered corners and was pretty pleased with how they turned out.

My fabrics for my mom's gift are scheduled to arrive on Friday, so I need to hurry up and decide what I want to make her!  Hopefully I'll be back to share that soon :)
