dresser runner

I got right back to working on ufo's again. This is a runner for my dresser that I started over a year ago. I got the center part and the end appliques finished and laid out the 3 pieces on my dresser to see how it looked. And somehow - I left it there - enjoying it in all it's unfinished glory for months - lol.
Finally this last week I did some simple machine quilting in the center and I echo quilted around the applique with my walking foot (LOTS of turns :0)

And now it can go back on my dresser so I can enjoy it - finished!

I started with a lovely pattern by Marcie of Patchalot Patterns. Now that I've finished my variation I want to make it again only this time make the actual pattern with all the borders and cornerstones :0)

Here it is back on my dresser. I'm sure it will do a great job of protecting the finish on the top of the dresser. At least that's what I'm going to tell my husband it's for :0)

I haven't forgotten about the giveaway. I'll get to it soon. I just have a rather busy week this week.
Happy Quilting!!
