A Runner for a Friend

This Black, Red and White Runner was made for a dear friend who is taking a new job.  I wanted her to have something to take to her home away from home as she makes the adjustment to working in Colorado.  The finished piece is 74 X 20; some free-motion stitching in the borders with basic stitching around the shapes; basic off-white quilting thread for the top and nice bright red in the bobbin.  Total time for completing this two evenings.

I used two red fat quarters along with black and white fabric on hand.  The basket of scraps is proving its worth.  A reminder to quilters to continue to add scraps to your basket for future projects.
