The 50th Anniversary Table runner

  My cousin asked me to create a table runner for her friend's  50th Anniversary.   This table runner was appliqued using good ol'  steam to seam (or is that "sticky things well"??  :)   The two people are supposed to be a portrait of her two friends.   So far my cousin has said that the male looks and dresses just like her friend.  Yahooo!    There are fifty hearts in this quilt.   Along the tree roots are the words "Growing together in love for 50 years".     No pattern.  My original design.   French Braid block that started out way too wide and was quickly chopped down to size... hurrah for the forgiving French Braid block.    
The photos aren't very good but on a windy day in Brandon,  this is the result :)
Size is  72" long by 25" wide.
