Modern Table Runner Challenge

This was my favorite, heirloom smocking to create a gorgeous rainbow!
Kathy finished her Tree Grows in Brooklyn runner a couple of hours before the meeting.
Catherine shared two from her Quilting Arts program with us and the stunning placemats

Anita sent hers in with Nan and is much more stunning than the pic!

Nan created this bright runner from leftovers. 
Bert made this and the next two, all as gifts!

Sharon saw this type on Facebook and figured it out herself!
Nancy shared 11 of her super fun table runners with us.
