The table runner, which can double as a wall hanging, measures 15'' x 75'' and is strip cut and machine pieced and quilted.  Five colorful "plus" blocks are included on the front while the back is a bit more subdued with three simple accent stripes. Either side can be used.

I like the "banner" appearance of the runner when it is hung it vertically. It makes a nice addition to my porch.

Positive Thoughts Table Runner Back
With the exception of the medium gray fabric which is a shot cotton, all of the other fabrics used in the runner are Kona cotton solids. I'm a huge Kona cotton fan.  I love the crispness, drape and durability of these fabrics.

I used a white, high sheen quilting thread in an overall grid pattern.  All of the quilting was done on my domestic machine. A few more close ups follow that show more of the quilting detail.
