Running With Donna, Part 5

YEA!  We're done!  We're done!  We're done!  Both of us!  This could be a record-fast finish for me!  :)  Donna and I each finished our runners on Thursday!  (If you need to catch up, click for Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.)

Without further ado, here's Donna's runner:

Isn't it gorgeous?!?!  I love the soft floral center and the blue background!  To me, these are comfort colors.  You know, if you can have comfort food, why not comfort colors?  They just make you feel soooooo wonderful inside!

Here's how mine came out:

At this point, I'd like to thank both of our husbands for being quilt holders. Are you guys smiling back there?

The colors on mine aren't as true in these next two shots, but here's how it looks on the table:

(Note to self: Don't shoot in a west-facing room during the late afternoon.)

I think it shows the quilting pretty well!  It was excellent practice!

This weekend, we're trying the pattern again - only I did some math for us that should make things come out a LOT more even.  Stay tuned and thank you again for reading!

I love both of them. I like your last picture of the back because you can really see the quilting. Nice job.

They are both so beautiful! It boggles my mind how you do that though! Again, seeing the quilts with arms and feet always makes me giggle! :)
