Bamboo Shade Modern Table Runner

Feeling the need to see a bit more quilty goodness in my daily household duties, I decided to make an everyday table runner for my kitchen.  I have several holiday ones, but nothing hand made for in between seasons.

 I opted a for an eclectic mix of my favorite green, brown and cream fabrics to tie in all the colors that are prevalent on my main floor. The design is simple strip pieced patchwork using the Bamboo Shade pattern by Aardvark Quilts.  For the green fabrics I chose the bright tone used in many of the original Lush fabrics and also used a green variegated aurifil 50 weight thread of the same intensity for definite pops and bound the patchwork with some a brown Moda grunge.  I love it in all it's modern simplicity.

I am linking up with Amanda's Finish It Up Friday.  Check it out if you haven't already.
