Fall Transitions Tablerunner

I had been working on this earlier this month, and actually finished it probably over 2 weeks ago, but I had hoped that my dining room would be put back together by now so I could "stage" this table runner on my mother's beautiful dining table. However, the contractors are not done in our bathroom, and it looks like we just moved into the house. So I had to go outside to take the pictures.

I'm calling this "fall transitions" because the colors remind me of the beginning of fall, when the leaves are just starting to turn, and yet some of them are still green.

The fabrics are from the Bali Pops jelly roll that I've been making small projects from for over a year now - and I still have a decent amount left even after the messenger bag, 2 purses and a table runner. The multi-color batik and the cream batik are from my stash (and leftover from other projects0.

I quilted an overall leaf meander, but I threw in some flowers, tomatoes and a pumpkin. This piece is going to my brother as soon as I can bear to part with it.

And this is the back:
