Finally I finished this custom order last Monday I think it was. The lady came round and we chose fabrics jointly but some of them I was short of so she told me to add what I thought. She hasn't seen the brown dividing strips so I'm not sure what she'll make of it. Hope she likes it.
The lighting has been really bad for taking photos so I took them to the furniture shop where I sell some of my runners.
This runner measures 50.5" x 27.5" (128cm x 70cm).
This is the back.
The table topper measures 31" x 19.5" (79cm x 49.5cm) and each of the square blocks on both the runner and topper measure 5" x 5".
I kept a note of the times I actually sat down to sew these two and over the course of about 8 days when I added up all the hours it came to approximately 24 hours. It felt like more than that.
I make my runners and toppers slightly different to the conventional way of making them which I'll show you in another post as this one is already a bit photo heavy.
