Valentine's Runner: Just in Time for Dinner


I finished this last night just in time for dinner...to put it on the table briefly for a decoration and then take it right off again to eat.  It is made with fabric from Sandy Gervais' Flirtations line for Moda and Anka's Treasures Little Charmers II pattern.    I tried something a little different for quilting this time.  The center blocks and inner border I stitched in the ditch (still need some practice) and then stippled in the setting half triangles and outer border. 

While we didn't get to enjoy this runner for too much of the Valentine holiday, I am so happy to mark another finish on my UFO list!


Since it happens to be Tuesday, I am linking up to Quiltstory's Fabric Tuesday.  Be sure to check out all the wonderful projects everyone has shared.!

It looks terrific!!! I vowed this would be the year I'd tackle some runners for myself and gifts. Here it is Feb and I still haven't begun...I might have to treat myself to a charm pack to get a totally coordinated runner...my fabric picking skills are less charming :P

It's very cute Karen. I finished mine RIGHT before Valentine's day last year and it was so fun to take out and enjoy this year. I'm sure we'll both be enjoying them for many years!!
