five layer salad tablerunner

 I started this project last month with the idea that I wanted to sew black and white strips together!!
 So I went searching online and in my books and quickly I came upon the book "Let's Do Lunch"  I found a pattern called "Seven Layer Salad" and I knew that I could adapt my black and white idea to this pattern.  I used jelly roll strips and made five sections....thus the name I call it!
 I used Pat Sloan's batik fabric because I wanted something bright and colorful for my table.
 Here is another photo...this photo with flash and my new plant in the middle!
I have previously posted photos of this progress on instagram.  I had decided at first just to quilt the centers of each group of three....but that wasn't enough so I just did wavy lines down the middle of each strip.  I am happy with this little tablerunner and am making placemats to match.
The measurements are 16 x 31½.
 Smiles and hugs....Caryl
