Spring Table Runner

I finished this table runner last week but I wanted to wait till it got to it's new owner to show it.  My Sister-In-Law wrote me yesterday that she had received it and loves it.  Yippee Skippee!!  I had so much fun making this little table runner and decided maybe I should do some more "small" projects.  It is so nice to have that super fast gratification of a completed project :)

Obviously, this is not the table it is for :)  I did HST's in alternating Pinwheels and Diamonds :)  Doesn't this just make you feel like Spring!!

 A little close up on the pattern.   This fabric is from the Sweet Divinity line by Amanda Herring from The Quilted Fish.  I just love it!!  I just can't get enough of those beautiful greens!!!

A close-up on the quilting.  I did my loops and flower quilting.  It has become a favorite and it gets a little better each time I do it :)

 I didn't have any Sweet Divinity yardage so I just grabbed a fun print from my stash for the backing :)
Pin It!

  7. If you think it looks good here (all you commenters), you should see it in person. So so so fun!

    Melissa--thank you! I'll take a picture of it "in place" so you can see how it's being used. (It fits perfectly)
