Blogger's Quilt Festival ~ Original Design Entry

My second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival in the Original Design Category, my first ever Bed Runner Quilt.  Making a bed runner had never crossed my mind before!  When I was contacted about a custom request, I was intrigued.  After brainstorming and having a plan of attack, I came up with a three panel theme:


22" x 88"

 I machine quilted horizontal organic wave, lots and lots and lots of them!

In it's new home!
In the end, I think making a super sized runner for a bed is a fantastic idea and I was so happy with this one!  Seems to me this is a perfect way to add some color, texture and spice to any bed!  Plus, it will keep those frosty toes warm!

You can read about it in a previous post here: 
It's Good To Be King (bed runner that is) and here: Bed Runner WIP
