Braid Table Runner

I needed a break from my spinner blocks, and decided to play a bit with my mini Hex 'n More ruler. The pieces for the braid is cut from 1.5" strips from my scrap box. The inner border is a 1" strip, and the outer border is 2.5" wide.

I had myself convinced that I would only need two strips wof for the binding - my mistake! I ended up with a gap of about 2" and had to attach a small piece in between. But I don't think anyone will notice the extra seam

The table runner was started on July 28th and finished on the 29th. The finished runner measures 11"x33", a good size for my kitchen table.

The quilting on it is inspired by this tutorial video by Angela Walters

I still have heaps of practice to do to get my flowers even in shape and spacing, but I'm pleased with the over all look of the runner.
