Another Table Runner!

I finished sewing the binding down on this table runner last night, wrapped it up this morning and popped it in the pigeon hole of the birthday girl. When she unwrapped it at recess she was more than okay that it was late! Everyone crowded around her and ohhed and ahhed which I'll admit I found embarrassing. I'm proud of my work but that part makes me blush.

Its adapted from the pattern Aunt Millie's Garden. I appliqued the shapes on just with the raw edge style, then pebble quilted it till it was as stiff as a board!

In hindsight, I should have done it 3 flowers on one side, 2 on the other. Oh well, next time!

Just stumbled onto your blog, but I had to comment about this table runner: I think it is just perfect as it is! Don't pick it apart, just enjoy how really beautiful it is!! I'd be totally proud of it if I made it :-) From one Helen (in Healdsburg, Ca) to another, have a great week!
