An Oakshott autumn table runner

One of my favourite Oakshott F8th packs is called Autumn so, when Sewing World magazine asked me to make an autumn table runner, I decided to pair a pack of Autumn with Oakshott Red Diamond to make a zig zag table runner.


And, woohoo, on Friday a copy of the magazine came in the post.  If you haven't tried Sewing World before, it's worth a look.  It's packed with all sorts of sewing projects including clothes, quilting projects, bags, curtains etc.   I'm not going to lie.  I do get a colossal kick out of seeing something I've made in a real life magazine!
