Rainbow Feathered Table Runner

What you will need

  • 100% cottons in rainbow colors on white background. Quilted with cotton variegated thread both top and bobbin. I drew the stem
  • then free-motion quilted the feathers
  • adding a rib inside each. I went back and echo stitched last. The back is a solid delft blue so the variegated thread makes a pretty back. I did this start to finish in about 1 1/2 days at a retreat.

Thank you. Go for it! It's a nice way to use those bold colored solids or almost solids.
