Debut: Reversible Black & White Picket Fence* Table Runner
I gave a sneak peak of the fabrics for this project on Nov. 15th.
When those fabrics (blacks, grays, whites, & little bits of yellow/gold) played together, this is what happened:
Notice the Japanese kanji fabric? I think it says "ninja."
It might looked "washed out" since the fabrics are black, white, gray, but in person they're sharp.
I chose a fabric with a plaid design for the binding, which is more gray than black. I thought the yellow/gold would help draw out the yellow/gold in the top. The splash of floral on the back makes a contrasting statement to the geometric-type of fabrics and layout that dominate the top. All that's left is hand-stitching the binding to the back, then watch for its appearance on Etsy!
*I mentioned in my Nov. 12 blog post my plan to publish a tutorial and/or pattern of this "picket fence" design. If you'd be interested, please let me know so I can notify you when it's done.
