Post 12 ~ Happy Birthday table runner

I made this bright table runner to celebrate all the birthdays in our house over the next few weeks, I was supposed to be finished for Stuart's 9th Birthday in September but I ran out of time. Cate's birthday is next, November 4th.Nice and bright using my "Citruz Yarn Dyed Plaid" Jan Mullen fabric, not much of this left in my stash. I traced the letters onto vlisofix and secured with raw edge / free motion applique. I am not very good, hence I have justified my trip to South Australia to master the art with Kellie!I tried out some stipple quilted pebbles for the border which looks great on the backing, a bright orange spot. Measuring 16" x 43" it's perfect for our table.

It looks fab! Bet you'll love your Kellie workshop too. I am in awe of your letters. I would have had to do them over, as I would have forgotten to reverse them first!

I love your runner! I think the the threads coming off the letters add to the charm. Imperfection is way better than perfection anyway.
