Quilting Can Be Fun!!!

I did it! I finished the table runner. Okay here's the truth it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. But I've learned a few things. I learned that if you keep poking yourself with your needle and pins you end up with a lot sores on your fingers and blood on your project. I really need to invest in a thimble. Also, stippling with my sewing machine was a wreck. I really need a better sewing machine before attempting that again. So I hand stitched the whole thing, luckily it's not very big. Yes very time consuming, but worth the work. It's the finished product that matters most.

I love it! The colors add so much sunshine and cheerfulness to our kitchen. I'm looking for my next project.

  1. Good job Christine! It is very cute, and I look forward to seeing it in person! I've done table runners in Christmas fabrics and sent them off as gifts. I kept 2 for myself and they add just that added color needed for table tops. Good luck on your next project. Keep us posted!
