Quilted Table Runner

So I decided to join in the fun with U Create with Me and their monthly tutorials.  The tutorial for August is this great quilted table runner by Amy over at  Diary of a Quilter.  I just had to make one for our kitchen table.

I have one of those square bar height tables that seem to be all the rage.  The problem is they are SQUARE.  Nothing fits them, table cloths are round or rectangle, so i'm always "fixing" things for the table.  Don't get me wrong I LOVE the table.  It almost fits the whole family (Hey, it's hard to fit 9 around a table in the small dining area we've got) 

Since this tutorial is all based on YOUR measurements I decided to make mine square.  And it looks great!

I decided to go ahead and use the free motion foot on mine instead of quilting in a strait line.  What can I say i'm really liking the results.
And I love that it is reversable, so if I get sick of the stripes, I can go with the cute little floral pattern

What a great tutorial, I'm going to have to make one for my mother (only round) for her kitchen table.
