Love Abounds Version 2

Last week, I posted about my latest (and prettiest!) table runner, Love Abounds.


This past weekend, while cleaning up the studio, I happened across a pretty hand dyed teal batik that had pink in it. 


Now wouldn't those hearts cut from the centers in Love Abounds look pretty on that? And without a second thought, I fused them down. Granted, they were a bit smaller than the original pattern, but it was still easy to figure out their placement.

This is Love Abounds, Version 2!






Oh, and I had fun quilting this! 


I normally don't do a lot of feathers, but I certainly did on this one! I had such a great time meandering around with feathers and swirls - sometimes you just have to go for it!


The hearts are filled with either crosshatching (2 have curved crosshatch), or pebbles with swirls. 


This runner is just as lovely as the first! It's nice to have two options to the pattern, one as outlines, and the other as solids. A definite bonus! For the pattern, check out my Craftsy or Etsy stores, and let your love abound!

Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Great use of the inside hearts from the first runner and it looks lovely. I think your quilting looks really good. I don't quilt feathers very often either but I like how you have quilted them here so need to give this a try.

  4. This is lovely. Really enjoy seeing your quilting. We have a club challenge entitled Secret Valentine I have to get done this week and I may just borrow the idea of curved crosshatching for it!
