October ALYoF goal achieved!

Yesterday I finished my table runner, which I have called the 'Not So Bewitched Runner' due to the fact that in the pattern it was all in Halloween colors, but I decided to make it in a color scheme that could work all year round.

It is always fun to display a finished project in a not so likely spot, but what is better than this car in the playground? The lighting is also good to show off the quilting.

The hood of the wooden car is a perfect spot for stretching out the runner. The dimension is 18" x 54". The print fabric is from the line Birchtree lane by Connecting Threads.

A playground is the perfect place for a photo shoot. I used Britten Nummer by Ikea for the backing. The binding is a grey/black print I bought at Hancock Fabrics a few years back.

I love how the crisp white background enhances the prints, and together with the colors of the slide it makes a perfect display.

The last picture is taken on my deck. It was an overcast day today, great light for photos.

This concludes my ALYoF project for October, and it is also my second goal for the 2015 Finish Along List for the fourth quarter.
