I'm so Happy!

Oh so happy!!!
I've finished my Happy Vine Table Runner and I could not be more pleased!!!

I love the fabrics, I love the curves and I love it on my table!
I've used mostly Pam Kitty Love fabrics and the pink flowery one from Tasha Noel's 'The Simple Life' and a blue circle one from '30's playtime' by Chloe's Closet. The binding is the most delicious multicoloured spot also from Pam Kitty Love, which I would love to buy metres of, and the stem is scribbles from Ed Emberley 'Happy Drawing'. I've backed it in a floral from Ikea which I seem to have rather a lot of!!
I went simple with the quilting and just outlined the leaves.
It was originally a harvest themed table runner from Pretty in Patchwork Holidays and had just 6 pairs of leaves, but I wanted to make it bright and fun and something to be used now and that wouldn't look too small on our table.
I added two pairs of leaves and it's finished up being 55"x17" and I think is sits quite well on our too white table.
It was the March project of the sew along on Threadbias. The sew along has really been great, lots of ideas and support and the projects are coming out so different to each other.
I'm not sure if I'm going to do April's quilt project yet but........ maybe just a mini of one of the quilts!!


  1. It's lovely! I think I need to make a table runner for my table, too. Not this one and also knowing full well that it's usually covered by my machine and a ton of fabric.. still, totally has me inspired. :)

  2. Wow that is stunning, is anything allowed to be placed on it though? - it looks too good to be used!

  3. It turned out great!

  4. Loving the curves! Such a pretty runner. Shame the weather doesn't match the lovely spring colours!

  5. Looks great Joanne, love the fabric you chose for the stem in the end.

  6. It looks fab, love the bright colours :o)

  7. Hi Joanne, your table runner is so pretty! I really like Pam Kitty fabrics, so sweet! I also love the backing fabric! Going to go see if I can find some!


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
