Birthday Runner

It's finished...... Only a month overdue, but hey, at least it is done! And very well appreciated!

This Table Runner is a whopping 2 mts long x 50cm wide, just the right size to fit on my MIL's entertainment unit (Dennis sneakily measured it while she wasn't looking).

I sort of cheated. I did the binding fully by machine, I don't think I would try this style again. Was very fiddly:

And, I decided to have a play with quilting feathers. I am happy how this turned out, though, not perfect, but happy with my first attempt! Thanks Diann for your info xx


And, on a couple of half hearts in a row. This was a bit awkward as the method of quilting is different to normal quilting to using the frame. Lots of stops and starts, and rolling back and forward.


So, this is my first finish to February!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
x Sarah
