Table runner on the move.

I finished my table runner this afternoon so I am ready to pass it on to the next person. The idea is if you want to make this very easy table runner leave your name and I will draw a name out of a hat on Friday. When the winner has made her table runner she will post a picture and give the pattern away to someone else. The table runner has already been made by Pat and Deb and it will be interesting to see how far it travels.

Project 365

This was my first attempt at free motion quilting I think I need a lot more practice before I attempt a quilt. I did an individual flower in each square every time I thought I was doing fine I would lose concentration or concentrate too much and end up with a mistake. It was a great small project to cut my teeth on.

Table runner

If you want to play along and make this little table runner just leave a comment and I will draw a name on Friday.

I am having trouble with my emails so if you have left me a comment and I haven't responded I am really sorry I will have to get Sean(my IT specialist) to look into it for me.
Hope you had a great weekend.

It looks like a pretty good attempt. Was it straightforward to make? I don't get along with my sewing machine. I think it hates me for not using it properly.

Kris said...

I love your runner! I have to agree with other commenters, your fabric choices are brilliant. I also think your free motion quilting is lovely. Lovely shapes in that flower! Great work!

Sweet P said...

Stephanie said...

Well, I think I need a spring table runner, so would you please put my name in? Thanks!

Nic said...

Your quilting looks great, as does the table runner as a whole. Please count me in on the draw.

Leanne said...

Great job. I think your quilting looks great. I love the fresh colours. Please add me to the draw.

nicolette said...

This is fun! If I understand it correctly the winner will receive the pattern and will make a tablerunner and once it’s finished, post about it, draw a winner from the comments for the pattern, not for the tablerunner.. Sorry, my brains don’t function today...!

Christine said...

Beautiful tablerunner. I love the fabrics you used.

Grazia said...

Very lovely your table runner!!!!
I'm so sad...I lost this opportunity....I can't stay more than three days far from my computer....it's all done!!!!
Next time I'll be more lucky!!!
Have a great week end
Grazia
