Opposites Attract!!!!!

IHey folks!!!......my day to take part in this blog hop organized by Marian over at http://www.seamstobesew.com/.  Have you had fun so far????  We are really lucky to have the great giveaways too!!  Fat Quarter shop and DJ Inkers have been so generous.

Now for my part in this one, I made a little table runner.  We were allowed 3 colours, but I stuck with 2, and I did keep it under the required size.

This is done with a soft purple and chartreuse( light yellow/green).  The pattern came from a quilt that I just custom made.  This made the choice really easy..lol
Another look at it....with my tulip blossom in a large cup.

And here is the quilt that the idea came from....and the true colour of the fabric.  Amazing what lighting does, eh!!!
To get in on the giveaways, please go over to Marians blog with the link above.  Thanks for visiting!!!

Today's schedule...

  25. Nice design on topper--wish the colors had showed better, they go so well together, sort of a split-complementary without the yellow-orange. I like it!
