Yip, yip, yip. So partner, I've finished it. My Table Runner for the Modern Christmas Table Runner Swap. And I have to say I'm very pleased with how it's turned out. It's not perfect, but it's a lot better than I thought it would be once or twice in the last few weeks!
I've tried paper piecing the border (twice, if you don't know why read this).
I've tried applique and fancy machine embroidery
I also tried FMQ'ing around those baubles, hand quilting around them (which was rubbish!), adding ric-rac, diagonal quilting, frosty quilting, and even meandering FMQ, in white and green, all on my test piece
And the final outcome
|One table runner complete with baubles and wonky stars|
|and snow-flake quilting|
|and the back|
|And a roll up|
|With a little Chrissie Dekkie to go with it.|
Happy Christmas, Partner!
