Happy Belated 4th of July Table Runner

Between Liberty and I we are racking up those sky miles - or a least we would if we could.  It has been a crazy month for both of us and I really wanted to post this before we left for our vacation to Utah.  But of course packing and getting other things ready became more of a priority.  So for those of you who celebrate July 24th in Utah - Here is a way fun table runner that I made for our family auction in Utah.  My sister in law was so excited and even more so that she could still use it for the 24th.

I found the idea at V and Co from Amy of Diary of a Quilter over a year ago.  She did this beautiful table runner and last summer I wanted to make one of these and cut everything out and then . . . NOTHING.  I was digging through my fabrics last month and found this all ready to go.  I knew I needed something for the family auction and thought - this won't take me more then an hour.  BINGO.  Really easy once you get started.  All the instructions are there and it is really user friendly.  I decided to use the cool metallic thread I just acquired and this is a closer view of the stitching.

That one is a bit blurry but here is another one just so you can see how cute it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope I can get a couple more things that I have finished in the last little while on here.  We will see.  I'm not promising anything.  Life is a bit crazy with an on the go 9 month old, a very active almost 4 year old and their older sister.  But that is how life is, isn't it.

Have a nice day!
