Table Runner Completed!

A table runner, a UFO, just needing its binding, for over a year has been completed, and a Quarter 2 Goal has been completed. I love how this one turned out.  I quilted it using the free motion option on my machine, the stitches are not all perfect, but it was not nearly a disaster as I thought it would be.  Of course the easiest thing to do was what took the longest to do, which was making binding and handstitching it on.   Check out my cute kitty, making sure the work I have done is to her satisfaction.  It was more like she wanted to be in on the action, as my new comforter makes for a great background!


I have learned a lot about squaring up, and not sewing directly on the line (thank you Bonnie Hunter and her post on C&T this month), along with using a scant quarter of an inch, but it is all a learning process.  Which means the next time I make this specific pattern I will be using my new knowledge and put it to the test, along with another time I have points and doing the stitch and flip method of triangles.






I even put a label on it, however it will not be going in my store.  Instead it will stay in my home and live on my table.

Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts, and I can not wait to see what everyone else is working on.
