Valentine's Day is almost here so I decided to make a table runner. I am envisioning my husband and I having a romantic candlelight dinner at home ;)
I made this up as I went. I used an embroidery design by Alba of Quilting the Thread Art Way called Hearts & Swirls. There are 20 designs on the CD in all formats and the sizes are 8" x 8" and 5" x 5".
All the designs are so pretty it was hard to choose which one. I decided to use two different ones. I made two blocks with the designs centered.
I used Moda fabric Sew & Sew by Chloe's Closet for the middle strip and Robert Kaufman batik Patina Handpaints Scarlet for two side strips. I added sashing and framed in the blocks with Kona Solid Pimento.
Check out this tool. I LOVE it!
