At last I finished it for the MQS show in Wichita, KS where it won a 2nd place ribbon in the all-over quilting category. It makes a lovely color-rich backdrop for Rainbows varigated thread and some quilting that gives movement and interest to the surface.

Originally, I designed "Show Off! Tablerunner" to showcase some bright, fun contemporary prints.
It took me awhile to figure out how to put the four patch between the on-point squares. It's a bit of an optical illusion that requires some simple assembly tricks. I liked it in these fabrics.
But then I found this POPPY print by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller fabrics -- and I LOVED it in these fabrics!

I just LOVE the Kaffe Fassett stripes and shot cottons. They are a little primitive compared to the smooth high quality cottons that we typically see in quilt shops BUT, and this is a big BUT, they are yarn dyed wovens from India that have a particularly warm, earthy appeal.
What do you suppose I should make with these?
I have a little something in mind that my friends at DCSQ suggested that I name "TV Test Pattern!" Stay tuned.
