I did what was to be a quick table runner for a friend's birthday last week. I cut it out and started sewing on Thursday. We were spending Friday at the lake so it was perfect timing to sit in the sunshine and do the binding.
Instead it took FOR-EVER to quilt it. I did straight lines using my sewing machine and I ended up spending 4.5 hours, yes, hours lol, quilting it. But in the end, it was all worth it.
This is supposed to be a Christmas themed runner but it looks fabulous with the colours I chose.
You can see the amount of quilting on the back. Lots and lots of straight lines. I also machine stitched through the backing on the applique to anchor it down some more.
I really love these colours; I might have to do another for myself.
