Sweetwater Hometown Reversible Table Runner

I've got something fun to share with you today!
Remember those snowball-styled blocks 
for a Jump Ring quilt that
I showed you in this post???

Well...I used eight of the finished blocks to make
this fresh new table runner!

{Fabrics are Hometown, from Sweetwater for Moda.}

I selected some texts, polka dots and stripes
in red and gray, alternating light and dark blocks.

For the finishing touch,
I used a diagonal plaid print
from Sweetwater's Feed Company line.

It's just so yummy, bundled up in this sweet roll.

Can you believe it?
This table runner is actually reversible!

I hand-stitched the binding neatly,
thank goodness!

The backing is also from Feed Company...
a recipe text print!
I think I'll try at least one of these recipes out someday.

I didn't quilt the runner heavily,
and personally I prefer it that way.
I did some straight line stitching
but left the centers of the rings unstitched.

The fabrics are so pleasant,
and I like the way they are featured
in these large blocks.

I love the way these "modern" fabrics look
with my vintage tins...
and I'm sure the table runner would really set off
a contemporary dining room, too.

I have some more blocks left over,
so I think I'll make at least one, maybe two more table runners. 
This particular one is now up for sale

Come back soon!
