Pastel Patches

I felt inspired to combine the two fat quarters I bought at the sewing show (pink and blue) with some of my other fabrics to create a pastel spring table runner top. I haven't sewn anything with my machine for months, as I've been doing only hand work, and I noticed that while the sewing goes more quickly, the room for error is higher - at least, for me. I somehow mixed up the design I'd put together and ended up having to make last minute changes with a less satisfying result. It does have a fresh feel, though. I am interested to work with blocks rather then adding single pieces one at at time and I imagine I'll get an opportunity in the Nancy Crow class.
