Linen + Lawn Table Runner

I have one last curvy project to share this week (month). It's been my mission to play around with curved piecing through February and it's not been 'all' bad.

I made a fun little table runner with some natural essex linen combined with some Japanese Lawn prints. I chose to go with these more autumnal colours -  in the hope that autumn isn't too far away.

I love the look of the linen and lawn combination, even though they're such different fabrics to work with. Once I had a good length table runner, I sandwiched it with batting and backing and quilted it.  

The machine quilting is quite "organic" and then I thought, why not add a little bit more hand stitching detail? So I used DMC cotton in size 8 for extras.

I watched a class online by Jackie Kunkel called Contemporary Curves: Double Wedding Ring Quilts. In this video, Jackie shows us that it's not super hard to sew curves and even shares some fantastic tips on how to line up those curvy edges (without pins). 

I might need to start a Double Wedding Ring Quilt soon. 
Have you made one before?
