As promised, this quilted table runner is a recent addition to my collection.  My mother gave me the pattern for Christmas - it was one I had admired when we visited the Amana Colonies in Iowa last fall.  I used some fabric from my stash - who knows how long I've had it.
I did most of the quilting while riding the train to and from Austin last month, when I visited my son, and finished it at home while watching TV.

I used cross-hatch quilting for the background, quilted close to the appliques and used a scroll pattern for the borders on the ends.

I had long strips of the stripe in my stash which was perfect for the binding.
