Kitchen Goods Swap Revealed

These are the fabrics I received from Alice for the BMQG Kitchen Goods Swap: several fat quarters and a half yard cut of Kate Spain's Flurry for Moda.
I decided to make her a table runner with Dresden plate blocks (I know, shocking that I would turn to my favorite block). I used the interfacing method for the circles and it was so easy and good looking that I don't think I will do "super circles" again. I stippled it and backed it in this print:

It measures about 20" x 60" - which I know is HUGE - but her dining table is very large.

I added a few of my own fabrics - some Moda Bliss, a Sherbet Pips coordinate, and a reproduction print I got at the scrap bin at Keepsake.

This was a very fun activity and I can't wait to show you what Jane made me - it really made my weekend to receive such wonderful items made from fabrics I loved. Everyone in the guild who participated did an amazing job - I definitely think we should do something like this again.
