Christmas is over and i have finally finished my easter runner

i started a runner for my Easter table 2 years ago ... i managed to get all the yo-yo's sewn on and was starting to machine appliqué the vines and bunnies ... after looking at it many times i decided i was not happy with the overall look ... so i took all the yo-yo's off and started again ... 

i used smaller sizes of yo-yo's which i like much better ... so now i am ready for Easter ... yahoo

detail of the runner with the smaller size yo-yo's ... taking off the larger yo-yo's allowed me to fit 2 smaller yo-yo's between the larger ones and gave me more negative space in the background
it was a bright and sunny but chilly day at the beach
love the look of this runner laying in the snow and logs
runner pattern can be found in Kim Diehl's book Simple Seasons published by Martingale

This table runner is super!! I love it!! The quilting really adds so much texture to it.

The smaller yo-yo's provide more interest and shows off the quilting so well. The binding fabric is the perfect finishing touch, too.

Hey, NICE fix - amazing how much the new sizes affected this in such a positive manner. Super fun having the yo-yo's on the flying ribbons, and the tulips in the corners are the perfect touch. Very pretty finish.
