A Finish!

 We're off to a surprise 70th birthday for one of my sisters-in-law. I thought I'd make her a table runner. She loves chickens and this will fit in nicely 
in her country kitchen.
 I was given this panel (I think it is a Debbie Mumm) a couple of years ago and decided this would be perfect. All the other fabrics are from my stash too. 
All I had to buy was some pellon!
After trimming the blocks as evenly as I could 
(you know what those panels are like, I'm sure) 
and adding some borders, I think it has come up quite nice.
The colours are more brilliant in real life.
I found this fabric in my stash as well and it was 
perfect for the backing.
