Valentine Reversible Table Runner

 

It seemed like a good idea last year when Hobby Lobby had some end of season valentine fabric on sale, I snapped up a few half yards and had great plans for making some valentine décor.  So the fabric has been sat in my stash pile for over a year now and valentines day is only two days away (which reminds me don’t forget to enter my giveaway)  So I decided to make something with it!!! to be honest I no longer liked the fabric and was at a loss of what to do with it.

That was until l came across an awesome and extremely clear tutorial to make a table runner on Amy Smarts blog Diary of a Quilter, the tutorial is very easy to follow,  and I whipped this runner up in no time.  I plan on making a few more table runners with this technique, go check it out.

When it came to the quilting part of this runner, I used it as an opportunity to test and use some of the decorative stitches on my machine.  I am not sure if they show up well in the photos.  I am still not in love with the fabric, but at least I have used it up and it is not going to sit in my stash for another year.

  2. I like the fabrics and the runner. At least you decorated for Valentine's Day! I made a Valentine garland about a month ago and have not put it up yet! I guess I still have one day left to try.

  4. How cute is that! I love table runners...my table is white, and huge, so adding that pop of color without covering the entire table is a must for me!I am hosting my first link party today, and would love for you to add this, and anything else you like!
