Finished: black and white table runner

A few weeks ago, I posted some pics of a little mat I made for my someday black and white kitchen:

Well, there may be a few exceptions to that decision.

Like the mat, I did a pretty simple block design, focusing on the fabric than either the piecing or even the quiltin. And because people will look at it from all directions, I put the prints in all four directions.

Here are a few process shots:
