The pattern is called Hugs and Kisses.
It is beautiful. Thanks for showing.
Nice work, I like the simple looks complex of the finished project.
Very nice. I'm interested in knowing how you quilted it. Did you stitch in the ditch? Whatever you might have done in the border isn't visible.
I'm interested because I'm presently working on three runners. I'm stippling them. On the first runner, I treated the border separately. On the second runner today, I stippled in rows (as seen on one of Leah Day's videos) and extended those rows out into the border. I have one quadrant left to do, but I like it better than my first runner.
The thing that frustrates me the most is when I run out of bobbin thread and have to put in a new one. I don't like dealing with that beginning tail. The second frustration is removing the safety pins as I machine quilt. I'm going to look into those Pinmoors that Leah uses in her videos--they are so much easier to deal with.
I don't have a clue as to what Red ??Clover?? binder clips are so I'm going to do a google search. Maybe I should get some of those before I start on my bindings.
Very pretty! Love it in blue
Really nice work .........and my favorite colors. ty for showing!

Oh, that turned out sooooo pretty. I love the colors. The kit had pretty drab colors (teal & brown) & wasn't near as pretty made up as yours. Thanks for letting us see your beautiful results.

That is a very pretty tablerunner. TFS.
Beautiful runner! What a fun use of leftover fabric. TFS
Lori, I did stitch in the ditch but far enough away from the fabric so the dark blue color would stand out on the fabric.
I think with the next runner, I would like to do something different.
Always start with a full bobbin, which I am sure you do. I did and wouldn't you know it I ran out about 15" from being finished!
I am going to look and see if I can find Leah Day's video on stippling and see if I might like this.
What is everyone else's favorite way to quilt a table runner on a sewing machine?
Thanks for everyone's compliments.
Very nice job!!
A very nice use of scraps. Congrats
Beautiful! Love the blue!!!
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
When you run out of thread, leave a long tail on both starting and ending. Then pull the 2 threads together (so there are 4) and tie them in a tiny knot. Then take a needle and thread each side seperately and take a small stitch about 1/4" away, pull through and clip off. Repeat. Hardly shows and is stable.
"It's bad to supress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips."
my philosophy: there are no real mistakes in quilting, just design opportunities!!
Your table runner is beautiful and will alway be a reminder of your grand-daughter. A wonderful way to use the scraps from her quilt.
Beautiful tablerunner, I love it.
I loved your table runner. I like blue too. i and making some striped table runners now myself.
Sometimes I laugh so hard tears run down my leg! Lois
