Challenge Cherry Festival Table Runner

We have a Cherry Festival up here in northern Michigan, in July... right around the 4th. It's a HUGE party in Traverse City and everyone drags out their cherry stuff. So when I got a few pieces of cherry fabric for a challenge, I thought this would be a great time to make a cherry table runner.
 
I started with this Autumn Medley pattern from Thimbleberries then added huge cherries instead of pumpkins. I changed the vine and sunflowers to just one large flower. The fabrics reminded me of Mary Engelbreit colors so I kind of went with that. This is a good sized runner... about 24 x 42". Just have to bind it and turn it in.
