    Our oldest DD's birthday was on the 10th. I had hoped to have this finished for that and in time for Valentines Day....well that didn't happen:oops: , but I got it finished today! She called it her February table runner :-) It really isn't rippled and is straight, but the pictures look a little skewed.

    The embroidery in the center and in the center of the end hearts is done on my embroidery machine. The small hearts on either side of the end hearts was traced with a template and just straight stitched.

    This runner was made from a "Love is in the Air" Charm pack by Moda and some yardage. I started this in a class, I believe the patter was called "Lonely Hearts Club".

    Thanks. I fell in love with the fabrics and got 2 charm packs and 1 layer cake on Ebay. One thing I did learn is to be careful where you get charm packs. When I started working with them I discovered that they apparently had originally been 10 inch layer cake squares that had been cut (not very accurately in 4). I could tell because 2 edges were cut with what looked like pinked edges (like the charms from LQS's) and the others just straight. And they weren't all square. It did make matching things up a little challenging, but over all it was fun to make.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. I was pleased with the way it came out. Each project I do I learn a little more about the art of quilting.
