I started a table runner a while back after getting the pattern from the Row by Row Experience shop hop. This was from Threads that Bind in Maxwell, Ontario. I picked up their kit because I really liked the metallic fabrics - and knew it would make a great runner (and Christmas gift)! I am planning to make this in blues/cream and a lighter green for my row by row quilt - that I haven't started yet either :)
I have everything assembled and hand appliqued, and set it aside cause I got distracted with another project. I think it needs a border - but I kinda like it as is too. Definitely needs to be quilted and bound! If I give it a narrow white border, then I can use a red or red/white to bind. I'd like to do something kinda different on the ends instead of a plain binding. Maybe curved?
I don't know exactly how to finish it yet. So that's my goal this month! Finish this runner to add to my Christmas pile and make room on my sewing pile for another UFO!

Sometimes I need a deadline to keep me motivated to complete a quilt. What better motivation than participating in a bloghop?
While the snow and cold temperatures keep you inside, why not work on projects for this year's fair? The full listing is available to download now!
This month's block used paper piecing technique, one that all three of us were familiar with and happy to assemble!
My favourite customer, Ashley asked me to make a quilt from her daughter's baby clothes. I have previously made her quilts for her sisiter-in-law, her boys and she won a school quilt!
August's quilting technique was English Paper Piecing (EPP), a method I was skeptical to try at first.
