finished mini runner

first finished piece !!  woo hoo.  squares are the four patch posey, black strip border and a piano keys border caps it off.  i backed it with the cinnamon and tiny white dots, pulled the backing over to form a binding. the binding is pinned now as i have yet to learn the handstitching technique for the binding.....soon i hope, maybe this week !!

i am also making a card to represent each square or technique, well sort i get to play with paper and with fabric.  this mini runner is on a chest in the front hall.....adds a pop of color to the chest DH made years ago.
