Red and cream table runner

by Orkaloca luglio 9 creazioni * traditional

Few week ago I was commissioned to make a table runner that will be placed in a living room that's mainly red and brown.
I was left free to chose the style but I knew that the customer likes traditional and "country" style, so I decided to make a classic gradation runner.

I've decided for a colour progression from white to red via yellow :)
The construction went fast, but deciding how to quilt it was another story. I didn't want to rely on the usual stipples, but decide which quilting design sew took a while.

Being the fabric placement very geometric, I decided that the quilting had to be curvy, to balance the straight lines. So I made feathers.

The feathers on the center and on the border are made in freemotion, improvising. The feathered circle in the center of the table runner and the feathered motives on the corners are made in freemotion following a path copied on the fabric as I showed in my previous tutorial post.

And so here it is, the completed table runner.
