An Angels Story Table Runner



I quilted this little runner on Sunday and got the binding sewn on this afternoon.  This is from An Angels Story by Anni Downs and has been in the flimsy stage for several years.  It is meant to have hearts appliqued around the cream border, but when I dug the pieced runner out from a drawer recently I knew if it was going to wait for those hearts it might never get finished.  Perhaps if I knew how to I should have quilted something pretty in that border. But plain it is!  This should have been Number 31 on my list of WIPs at the beginning of the year, but I couldn't even find it at the time! lol 

Thanks for stopping by to visit today ............ this must be a record for me, 3 posts in 3 days ................see you again soon ................... Nicky

Thanks for the comment! All your quilting looks great :)

My Leanne's House has been on the go since 2006 and I'm still only on block 2!!! I was very new to patchwork when I got it and didn't really know what I was doing. I still don't really know what I'm doing but it looks a bit better now at least!
