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