Valentines Craftiness: I ‘heart’ this Table Runner!

Vday Table Runner 1

Here’s a cute Valentine’s Day decoration that makes great use of  fabrics from your stash and is just as cute as can be!!  This quilted table runner was made by our crafty volunteer, Gabe!  She found the pattern in the February/ March 2014  edition of McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine.  When she brought in her completed creation recently for a show & tell session, I just had to show it off to all of you!!  The multi-printed patchwork juxtaposed with the sweet hearts and lovebird appliques make for an adorable table runner to lift your spirits for Valentines Day.  And with just 2 weeks away from V-Day, what better inspiration to get you in the crafty mood?!

Can you spot the Clothworks fabrics in the square piecing, binding, and applique?  The Laurel Burch Glitter Basic in red adds another layer to the various pink, white, and rose multi-colored prints used in the patchwork.  And I think I spot some Impressions Moire in red, as well as some ‘Hug Me’ by Sue Zipkin!!

I love how Gabe pulled together all of the various prints used in the table runner top with her backing fabric selection.  The red/pink colorway of the Laurel Burch Basic Bubbles print couldn’t be a better compliment!!
