I finished this bed runner last month, but blog posts have been few & far between lately.

This was the original fabric: an old curtain that I picked up my favourite fabric store (the Red Cross)

I used a kaleidoscope quilt technique that I had read about, and made hexagons.  Here was a work-in-progress shot:

I didn’t have enough batting for it so I just quilted the top onto a piece of white backing fabric.  I used pretty much every square centimetre of that curtain, including some big crazy tie-backs with bows on them that were home-made with a variety of methods, including hand stitches, staples, and a couple of treacherous headless pins.  No sewists were injured in the making of this bed runner though.
