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!

Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
