What materials did you use? Charm pack and fat quarters

MarjorieV on craftsy.com

What are you most proud of? The colors, everything other than the charm packs was from my stash of material, including batting and backing. I wanted to practice quilting, just learning machine quilting. On this runner, I first quilted using my fancy dancy embroidery machine, then I added stipple in the blank areas. I became more comftable with my timing and the tension of the thread as I moved along.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? To practice quilting, make yourself a nice size practice piece and then try different techniques until you are satisfied. Have a sense of humor...I know this is not a masterpiece but it is practical, colorful and I made it all by myself.
