Here it is finished. It got a fancy treatment with tapered ends, buttons and tassels.
Funny how just a few simple embellishments can turn a sort of simple runner into something super fancy.
You'll recall that this was a randomly pieced scrap project. I just kept sewing pieces together until it was big enough.
That thin strip of saffron fabric on the right side is also what I used on the back.
Runner #2! After I was done piecing the first one, I looked at the pile of scraps remaining by the sewing machine and thought, "I think there's enough for one more!" This one has the same random piecing technique, but I left the edges plain and square. It's a lot more casual looking than the first one.
The pretty green and brown paisley on the outer border is also on the back.
