Karen's Hospitality, 20" x 52.5" table runner

Now I'm working on creating Karen's Hospitality by machine.

 Grey with green swirls for top fabric. Blue and green multi-color patterned background.

Grey with green swirls for top fabric. Blue and green multi-color patterned background.

I've selected a different palette for this one.  

I love to see patterns in different fabrics and colors!

I trace the pattern onto my fusible webbing and iron it onto my grey top fabric.  Then carefully cut it out, remove the paper and iron it onto my blue and green multi-colored background fabric.  Next to the machine. Which is where it sits, waiting for me to satin stitch the edges.

Karen's Hospitality

is finished!

My first rendering of the new design is hand stitched, quilted and bound with bias binding. It measures 20" x 52.5" for the larger table.

It is set on my table to welcome my invited guests to enjoy gracious hospitality.

And the pattern, available in our shop, is ready for you to make your own Karen's Hospitality to invite your guests to gather and enjoy your gracious welcome.
