I fnished my blue and yellow table runner finally ! washed it and took some snaps on the weekend …. so here it is!!
This is going to fit perfectly on my dresser and will go well with the blue ( uggggh! ) carpet thats in our bedroom.
I chose to do simple straight line quilting in the border and in the center i did an echo stitch about a quarter inch away from each seam. Well i call it straight line quilting, Hmmmmm i thought i was sewing straight all these years, but apparantly not LOL
One thing i did notice when quilting this was the difference in my piecing, pressing skills. they have improved greatly since i sewed this up last fall. a lot of the seams on this are not exactly flat, and some are a bit off as far as matching corners ! But i like it and will always be able to look back and see how far i have improved in my quilting skills ( I hope!! )
I also finished the 4th set of blocks in the Bloggers Block of the Month , dont even ask how i managed this , but the third set should have been november but mine were Marchs and now i did December instead of November…..
And in the mail when i got home from work was block one in the 2012 Designer Mystery from the Fat Quarter Shop, very pretty fabrics for this one. I think i am gonna like it 🙂 I finally found someone fairly close , just west of Grande Prairie AB a quilt store has an Easy Dresden ruler and since dh is up in that area this week he will pick it up for me , so no snow!
thats it for today sports fans, i need to go “rest my eyes'” for a few minutes before going downstairs to start quilting my Spring Colours table cloth. that really means a short nap!
