As I took the table runner we usually use to the laundry room for a wash the other day I was thinking how I really ought to make more runners for a little variety. The next day inspiration arrived in the mail. You see, I’ve treated myself to the monthly Kona Solids 1/2 yard club at Canton Village Quilt Works (Shhh…lets not mention it to Handsome). The price was right and I’ve been wanting to add more solids to my stash but I wasn’t sure about what I would get. Would these be 6 ugly half yards per month? All the colors CVQW couldn’t sell otherwise? Since I could cancel at any time I wanted, I decided to take a chance, and I’m so glad I did! Look at these pretty colors:
They are perfect for adding a little Valentine spirit to the house and I got started right away. When I saw this table runner in last winter’s edition of Modern Patchwork I knew it was only a matter of time before I gave in and made one for myself. Here’s my Valentine’s version:
This was a great pattern to work with and it was an easy Saturday project.
I wish the lighting and that honey oak table didn’t make it so hard to get a good picture!
It’s sweet and modern and probably too girly for the men in the house, but it’s just right for cheering up a gray February. Even better, I have lots of fabric leftover from this bundle to add to my stash. I can’t wait to see what color combination comes in next month’s package!
