Quilted Dresser Runner - All Solids

The request was for a red and green dresser runner, nothing fancy.

The challenge was to work with these colors and create something that would work year round, not just at Christmastime.  I think we accomplished just that.

Somehow it slipped my mind how challenging quilting on the diagonal can be, especially with a quilt this long. Either I need to practice more or give it up entirely - not my favorite to do but seemed to be what this quilt needed. As I was quilting, it felt like it was going to be a flop, but it turned out very nice indeed and square!

Overall very pleased with how this quilted runner finished. It was so easy and fun working with just three colors and simple blocks.
