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.
