Recently I was commissioned to make a table runner similiar
to the one above, which I made as a class sample.
I didn't want to sell the sample,
so I started making houses with fabrics that would be special to the buyers.
Here is the finished table runner. It measures about 18 by 40 inches
I used a variety of greens for the trees, and text and novelty fabrics for the houses.
Above are a rainbow house, a love house, and a prayer house.
And a music house, an African hut, a peace and writing house, and a rose house.
Here are the two of them side by side.
The bottom one is my class sample, and I regretted that it was wider than width of fabric,
which necessitated piecing the back.
So I made the new one a bit narrower, since 40 inches is plenty long for a table runner.
I love making wonky houses and trees,
and I plan to teach another class on this in fall.
Let me know if you are local and would be interested in signing up.
