Rebecca's table runner

I made a table runner for my daughter, and she wanted it to match her carpet.
Here are 3 separate views of her carpet...

These are 5 of the colors swatches that she sent me. 
I chose them for the main colors of the table runner.

I chose this color for the sashing, it matched up to Kona avocado perfectly!

I went to my local quilt shop and matched the color swatches to all the bolts of fabric.
I bought a half yard of each piece, and a yard of the Kona.
I cut 5" squares of the 5 main fabrics and cut some of them in half.  
The sashing strips are l l/2" wide.
I used a pattern that I got from my favorite quilt shop, Pine Needles in West Jordan, Utah during one of their quilt shop hops.

I put a 5" strip of some pretty "Liberty" style fabric on each end, with some matching rick rack.

I love how happy and bright this table runner is.
I backed it with leftover pieces.

It looks great on my black dining room table and shows off the photos of 2 of my sweet grandchildren, Maisie and Benjamin.
