Whew! The table runner is so close to finished. It's all quilted now, and I'm quite pleased with how the quilting came out. I stitched the binding in place last night, and now just have to hand stitch it down on the reverse side.
I really wanted to use the same Sturbridge Village fabric for the binding as the one I'd used in the border of the runner, but I just didn't have quite enough left. It's a scrappy runner though, so I don't think the different binding looks out of place.
I'll be teaching this runner as a beginners applique workshop next year. I've been asked by a few people if a pattern will be available. I'd say I'll be able to sell the pattern to the public in around May next year. Thank you so much for being interested, it really makes my heart sing.
This afternoon I just need to get some little bits and pieces together to send one of my quilts off to the magazine. I hope I get it all done in time - I guess I work best to a deadline ... and usually an impossibly tight one. Hope you're all having a great week - talk to you soon.
