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!
