Good afternoon, everyone! Whew! It's been a busy day. It's already 3:30, and this is the first chance I've had to get on my computer all day.
Last weekend, I finished the table runner I had started a week or two ago. I quilted a flower at the center of each block and a cable around the border. I also stitched in the ditch between each block and around the green border strips. I think it turned out okay. I also got the binding on. I am proud of myself for trying some free motion quilting. I have done some stitch-in-the-ditch quilting and some stipple quilting, but I really haven't tried to follow a drawn line before. I think it's about a C+ to B- job. I really need to improve. But, overall, I am happy with it.
I still love the fabrics. They are so bright and cheerful.
This was probably the best flower. I really liked how the variegated threads look.
Here is the border.
I'm especially proud that the back looks as good as the front. No puckers, thread nests, etc.
Some of my flowers aren't quite as good as this one. The lines in the center don't really meet up nicely like the one shown above. I don't like that. I am thinking of sewing pretty buttons to the center of each flower. But, that's always tricky on a table runner, because then it's hard to set stuff on it. What do you think? Any suggestions? Should I just leave it as is, or should I add the buttons? I just feel like it needs something else.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day.
Until next time,
