Table Runner Finish

Woo hoo!  A finish feels great, doesn't it?  Well, this one is special as it is a gift for a friend.


I made this table runner from a Tweet Tweet charm pack, one of my favorite Moda lines in the past few years. When I saw Laura Jane's table runner from the Modern Christmas Table Runner swap, I was super inspired and wanted to make something similar.  Laura's was a bit different than mine (read: more organized) as she had matching halves of the charm squares on either side of the lattice.  I went for a super scrappy look and had charm squares scattered all over the place.  


It's quilted in double lines along the white lattice strips.  The back is one solid sheet of a red Tweet Tweet print that I can't find the name of....


I wish I remembered to take a photo f the back when it was out on the line.  Too late now :)

That's the news.  I'm so very happy to have a nice little finish like this.  I love the pattern (thanks, LJ!) and I hope my friend is super surprised when it arrives at her house.  Enjoy it!
