Welcome to the Loverly Quilt-a-Long! If you’re just starting out with us, please see here for the original blog post, here for the first week’s cutting instructions, and here for piecing tips and tricks.
Originally scheduled, this week was supposed to be about quilting your Loverly table runner. I was a little overambitious in assuming I could piece two of these in a week. Although I got close, sick kids (and sick me), threw the schedule off a bit. So we’ll talk quilting next week, if that’s all right with you.

How is your Loverly quilt coming along? I’m loving the pictures I’m seeing on Instagram and Facebook, y’all are amazing!!
