Christmas table runner

I wanted to get back to basics after watching the Alex Anderson "Teaches you to start quilting" DVD. In this quilt which measures 34" x 34" I concentrated on accurate block cutting and accurate piecing - which I think has worked. The joins in the "square in a square" pattern have come together very well. This is also the first time I have tried this type of quilting (a criss cross which does not really show in the photo) - - took a bit of care marking out and the quilt needs a bath to remove the chalk lines - but not a bad effort for a beginner!
