Charms for a Valentine's Table Runner with Lazy Daisy Quilting

I quilted my table runner with diagonal wavy lines and an eight petal "lazy daisy" - I call it Lazy Daisy Quilting.  Here's a before photo. It's ready to quilt. There are 11 rows in length by 3 rows wide. I used the 5 inch quilter's blenders charm squares and added a floral print. A total of 33 squares. So simple, yet so pretty!
I started the quilting with the wavy lines and the daisies running in one direction.
Added my name and the year in the corner.
Then I quilted the wavy lines in the other diagonal direction.
Took it off the quilting rollers and trimmed the edges.  The table runner measures approximately 14" by 50". 
Flipped it over to show the back.

 And an up close photo of the lazy daisy.
I love the Lazy Daisy Quilting! Fun and whimsical!

I used an 80/20 Batting (80% cotton and 20% poly).  It is a perfect batting for a table runner.  Lays nice and flat and is machine washable!
Got the binding ready.
I will roll it up until Saturday morning, when I will machine embroidery stitch the binding. Update: Completed the Embroidery <---Click here.
Then it will be ready for my table for Valentine's Day!
Happy Valentine's Day - Early!

LOVE that lazy daisy quilting, and the table runner is so cheerful! I just emailed you that my quilt top is on its way. I'm so excited! I don't know if you always stitch your name into your quilting, but I'd love for you to do it on mine. :o)

That is lovely. The Lazy Daisy quilting, although you say is simple, is gorgeous and finishes it off nicely.

It's gorgeous and the quilting is just perfect!

Valentines day isnt the big thing in Australia that it seems to be in the US ...maybe I should make myself a table runner though!
