Grace’s Bed Runner

Is complete!  This is my October finish with A Lovely Year of Finishes.  I’m so glad I found this blog, as I find a goal or a deadline really helps me to complete projects.
My colleague Grace asked me to make a bed runner for her a very long time ago, she wanted it in bright colours with her name on it. Here is my interpretation of what she wanted.

Grace's Bed Runner
Grace and I work in a Library and I think the bright bands almost look like books on a shelf.

Some custom quilting.

Staying with the library (words) theme, I used a white on white text fabric for the back of the quilt.

I hope she likes it, I’ll bring it to her when I return from the InternationalQuilt Festival in Houston.  If this is not what Grace had in mind, my husband is waiting in line, he likes this lively little quilt, I guess we could all use a little Grace.

Please take a moment to stop by A Lovely Year of Finishes and see what others have completed this month.

I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection.


  1. have a great trip to Houston! Looking forward to hearing about it when you're back

  2. That is gorgeous! I'm sure she will love it. Have fun in Houston!

  3. It does look like books, so clever Edith, I love it.

  4. That is me, Shirley R

  5. Love the bed runner!! The stripes do look like book - so very clever of you!! Grace is a very lucky lady to have a friend like you. So glad you linked up with ALYOF so I could enjoy the eye candy!

  6. Lovely bright colours and I like how you used a different font for each letter.
