I was quilting on this earlier in the week and decided on Tuesday that I would try to get it finished so I would have 2 finishes for April. Last night during some TV watching I put the last stitches in the binding.
This table runner is from the book Recreating Antique Quilts by Wendy Sheppard. This project is called Patches and Crosses and I made this table runner as a part of participating in her blog tour in November. So this hasn’t been a UFO for very long.
I picked this to quilt now because I wanted to test FloMo with metallic and Monopoly (Superior) threads. I did all the SID in Monopoly and the feathers and CC work in metallic. I had a little shredding with the metallic but a couple of tension adjustments and a larger needle pretty much took care of that. The Monoploy quilted like a breeze.
I did a little cross hatching in the center blocks using orange So Fine.
I’m really happy with how this one turned out. I got the backing for the next quilt loaded today but didn’t have enough batting. I want QD Blend so I ordered another roll and should be able to get started in a few days. Guess I’ll have to work on my wall all weekend!
