    A Heart-Ful Table Runner

    I meant to get pictures up sooner, but the month of February has been a bit rough health/medically speaking...

    I had an idea for 12 months of Table Runners and have been trying to come up with ideas for every month. Some are certainly harder than others! This one, though late for Valentine's Day, would also be wonderful for Anniversary dinners at home!!

    Kid One (she's 16 and has been sewing for a few years, though not regularly), did the machine appliqué stitching for me. I think she did a fantastic job!!

    I couldn't decide on which background fabric to use. My indecision became the decision and I made it two-sided.

    I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day!!

    That is so neat and the possibility of using it for Valentine's Day or an anniversary. Quilters are so innovative.

    Great job! And a special kudos to your daughter!! My only child (son) finally married last July (not like he was an "old bachelor"...he's 27..lol) Anywhooose, I have been trying to convince my sweet daughter-in-law that she would love quilting/sewing...she loves to paint and is a great cook...so the creativity is there.. I love it when "younger people" are quilting...so tell your daughter "Way to go!"

    Awesome job. Love the fact that it's reversible. The two interlocking hearts are the perfect touch.
