Tuscan Inspiration

The KC Modern Quilt Guild decided to do a Chef's Swap...no, we didn't swap Paula Dean for Bobby Flay, we packed up a bag of scraps and some info about our kitchens, secretly traded bags and made something for each other's kitchens. I drew Sharon and she gave me scraps in burnt orange, green and gold and the inspiration of Tuscany. I made her this tablerunner.
It was fun to free piece and put this together for her. I so hope that it works in her kitchen.

Can you believe it's Friday already? Enjoy the weekend! Happy sewing!

It may be Friday, but it is still only a quarter till 9...
(I've been at work since 5, but it feels like it should at least be noon by now...)

Love it Jacqui and I'm sure your friends kitchen will look superb with this new addition - maybe I need to have a go at this modern piecing.

Very nice. I love the way you separated the colors with the light solids. Did those come with the scraps of did you add them later?
