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.
