Finish It Up Friday ~ Metro Hoops Runner

It stopped raining just long enough to to take a few pictures of my finished table runner the other day. I found it very difficult to get pictures showing the true color of the hand dyed fabrics I used. This first one is the closest to being true.
I used the Quick Curve Ruler and Metro Hoops pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful.

I also used their QCR Curvit template for the machine quilting.

I used Glide Thread and Pellon 80/20 batting.

These pictures taken inside do not show the true colors but I love the way they show off the texture.

I did have a few tension issues as you can see on the back.

Live and learn! Here it is on my kitchen table.
