A new tv cabinet deserves a new table runner. I made this using a piece of hand-painted silk I bought at a quilt show. I bought the piece because I liked it but had no idea what I was going to do with it -- until we had this new cabinet delivered & it screamed, "I need a table runner & I need it now!" I just happened to have the black & gold fabric on hand for the borders. I didn't use any batting in between the layers -- I wanted to keep it thin so the tv would sit nicely on it.

This table runner was made for our friends who have a home in Avalon. In order to match this particular shade of green, I clipped some fringe bits from an existing place mat to match the colors in the great room/kitchen area -- then added some "sandy" colors along with neutrals. Hope it looks good in their beautiful beach home!
