Always and Forever Table Runners

One of the things that has been very satisfying over the last year and a half has been the fact that I've been able to get a bunch of UFOs finished or previously un-started projects actually made and off my To Make list.  One of the items crossed off the UFO list was the pair table runners I pieced using a charm pack of Always and Forever by Deb Strain for Moda.

The last time I showed these here on the blog was February 2014, so a whopping 8 years ago.

They were both simple piecing but I still like the way they turned out. First up s the runner for our larger table which is in the dining room. It's 14" x 56".

The Love Dance panto is what I stitched on this using Glide White thread.
The detail shows nicely on the back which is a Red tone on tone print I found at a LQS.
This is the smaller runner that is on our kitchen table.  It is 14" x 48".  I created it literally from the scraps leftover from the longer runner and winged the design.
The blocks were pieced randomly and I think I used up almost all the bits so it was a Win, Win.
The one got the Heart Fancy panto stitched onto it using the same Glide White on the front and Glide Cardinal on the back.
I finished these last year, used them this year for a few weeks around Valentine's Day and now they are packed away until next year. 
I hope to delve into the UFO pile again soon to see what else I can get finished and crossed off the list.
