Peach Tree Street Table Runner
Remember my Peach Tree Street Experiment in acrylic yarn? Well, I had actually already made a table runner with the same pattern in size 10 thread for a wedding gift! I will warn you now that there may be an excessive amount of pictures in this post as I loved how it came out!
I found the Peach Tree Street pattern in the Star Book No. 224, Tablecloths & Bedspreads. Using size 10 thread, and a vintage No. 9 steel hook, I made a table runner consisting of 16 of the larger motifs, and 13 of the joining motifs.
The large motif is about 6 inches in diameter...
And it took me about 1.5 hours to make each large motif....
A little more dramatic in black and white, no?
I just love the texture of the popcorn stitches!
I can't even begin to imagine making an entire bedspread... Someday I may just have to do it!!
Anyways, I really loved this pattern! I've looked around online and I can't find it to give you guys the link... Maybe if I do more research and am more confident that it is in the public domain, maybe I could share it with you?!
Have a great weekend my friends!!
