In this beautiful quilt, "Dawning Forest" by Soyoung Chung from South Korea, there is a wonderful contrast between the pieced background and the trunks of the trees. You'll really want to take a closer look at the texture she has created to replicate the beauty of nature. We are not quite sure how she did it. The quilt was on display at Spring Paducah 2018.

Laura at SewVeryEasy has a two fabric table runner that you can put together in no time. It lets you play with the fancy stitches on your sewing machine and opens up the possiblities of all different kinds of thread.

Two fabrics and no pattern will make a two-sided table runner or two different runners...You get to choose and make your own pattern. It really is sew very easy :)
