I was hanging my washing out again and thought I would take the chance to get a good daylight photo of the new table runner I have been working on.
I am hand quilting because I love it so much. For this runner I decided circles would be nice to mirror the small amount of spotty fabric in the runner. I have varying sizes and using my trusty Clover chalk pen drew round a side plate, a sewing bits and bobs tin and, wait for it.............. my bowl for my kitchen scales!!! Dead technical!
|This is just one half of the runner the other half still needs to be quilted!|
I have my binding fabric. A mint/light green pin dot fabric, which I have just realised goes with my theme of spots with no forethought whatsoever!!! I bought this from my favourite online quilting shop, The Cotton Patch.
I really hope you like this. I love the colours, the prints and am loving the hand quilting effect too.
I have also been asked to explain how to make those little ds cases I made for the kids, soooooo I am tentatively planning a wee tutorial on it in the near future. I have never done one before so please bear with me. I will try my very best though!
Well I am off to make another cup of tea before I decide what needs done next.
