Jelly Roll Series - Table Runner!

** Etsy shop update - use coupon code XMASTIME15 for a 15% discount in my Etsy Shop, now thru Thanksgiving! **

With nineteen 8" strips sewn down the center and a few randomly cut strips sewn to the edges, and more random strips as binding, with one random strip over the back with some solid fabric thrown in.... you get this:
Finished size: 12" wide by 34 3/4" long
I did some straight random quilting, I thought straight quilting evenly spaced would be kind of boring for this since it's already so many straight lines. When I say random I really mean random... (FMQ foot update: I may have to wait on that since I went and bought myself a Keurig for my birthday.)

I really love this except... the flowery fabric on it isn't really "me". I'm not a "flower" person (except lilacs). So... I am still trying to decide if I'm going to keep this, sell this, or gift it. And if I sell it... do I wash it first (since it was made without washing first), that way a person buying it knows they're getting the crinkly look? (I personally LOVE the crinkly look) Decisions, decisions.

This is part of a series I started a while ago called "What can you make with a jelly roll?" using a jelly roll called "Reunion" by Sweetwater for Moda, which you can buy at the Fat Quarter Shop. (minus the yellow solid with white flowers, that was from my stash)
PS If you wanna pop over here and vote for me (Trick or Treat Wall Hanging ie: Trick or Treat Sue) that'd be great and I'd really appreciate it. If not, that's cool too.
