This garden of bright and happy marigolds grows in front of my house every summer - the marigolds reseed themselves and I love their color and smell.
The table runner I decided to make with the brown/red/orange/yellow/ and low volume maple leaves and nine patches I've been making this year as a part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge comes from these "late summer" colors. Thanks to a commenter on my post from last Saturday for suggesting that is what I should call this!
At first I thought it might need a border, but then decided I was happy with the size and shape of the table runner as is - about 12 x 30.
When I was looking around for backing and binding, I remembered the crumb blocks I've been making each month, and realized that they could make a fun backing!
So this table runner is reversible - and there's a rainbow on the other side, too!
The binding is from a red with tiny stars fat quarter that I found at the quilters' garage sale a few weeks ago.
Quilting with a diagonal grid following the shape of the blocks gave the table runner a nice texture!
I'm going to enjoy the Late Summer/Early Fall feel to this one!
