|I enjoyed picking out the thread colours for quilting|
I had fun using the 60 degree ruler and pieced the runner as soon as I got the pattern and fabric at last year's retreat.
But then it waited patiently until this year to be quilted.
I machine quilted straight lines using the walking foot following the diamond design. I used the Hera marker to mark the stitching lines. Can you see the line it made right at the tip of the marker? It's quick and easy and one of my favourite methods of marking quilting lines.
|Perfect place for hand stitching!|
This is where I sat with my morning coffee and hand stitched the binding on the last morning of quilt retreat. It is still a little cool to sit outside, so you can see that I was joined by no one!
It was so peaceful and beautiful there. You can see that finally the green is returning in my part of the world.
Here is the glamour shot of the finished table runner on the bench by the fountain.
So happy to have another UFO finished!
