Spring Bed Runner

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Charm pack and fat quarters
