I think both options are good but my husband liked the first one a little better so that is the one I did. I'm guessing that if I had mixed the colors up a bit more there would have been more arrangement options. I will try it out next time I'm playing. Here's the finished table runner top:
I also decided to work on my free form curves. Here's my start:
I liked the look of my first two sets of free form curves so much that I decided to do two more so that I could make a set of four place mats. Above is the second set of fat quarters that I cut and you can see two of the five cuts that I happily made. Do you see my mistake? The fabric on top was suppose to be right side up instead of right side down. I suppose I should be happy that I didn't make a big stack of fabric and cut. I will get the first two trimmed and ready to turn into place mats.
