I’ve been trying to work from my stash when I can. My Valentines is one that I choose as a project to do this. Most times it works out for me but this one got me.

I barely had enough red. That was good cause I couldn’t find another red that was close to the one I was working with. It was a very close call.

Then came my borders. Oh, the borders.

I thought for some reason that I had more of the black in my stash. Well, turns out the fabric I had put away was a very dark blue. Not the black I was using. Arrr…..

It will be good though. I’m just going to have to look around to see if I can find more or something very close.

So my project is not finished, yet. I do love this pattern and how it turned out. It is a variation of a pattern I designed over 4 yrs ago. It is paper pieced.

It is going to be a tablerunner when I find the fabric for the borders.

I adorable diamond patterns. Fabric, tiles, ceramics, whatever.

It has a bit of joker card like feel. I love that!

Thanks so much for stopping by and to Carol for bringing the Blog Hopping back around. She is a sweet hostess. Thanks also to our sponsor Riley Blake. Be sure to visit Carol @Just Let Me Quilt to enter the drawing for a fat quarter bundle called “Kisses” by Doodlebug Designs. It’s sweet too.

  1. Thank you for this interesting tablerunner. At first I thought you were going to make the card suits, after seeing your fab mug I understood.

  4. Thanks for sharing. Navy and black do look alike, indoors at least. 🙂 I like your table runner! Have a fun day! angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

  5. Really like your table runner. It would look good with the diamonds from the cup as the border , and hearts as cornerstones. (I see the fabric at halloween time.)

  6. I don’t like it when the blue pretends to be black…I’ve had that happen. I love, love, love the way this is going with the diamonds and hearts. It totally looks like a joker card! Thanks for sharing your project and hopping along with us! :O)

  7. I love the pattern, it will be a wonderful table runner. Best part of these hops is that when something doesn’t get quite completed we all 100% understand cause we’ve been there done that. Looking forward to its finish. Thanks for sharing.

  8. That table runner is cool! Love the design! We all encounter situations like yours, and we have to make do, don’t we? I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me… Your runner will look great when it’s done. Thanks for sharing!

  9. It IS going to be great when it’s finished! It’s looking pretty good, now! I love diamonds on quilts, too, yet I’ve only ever used them once, and they were scrappy strings. Thanks for sharing!
