This runner has been stashed away for ages, a couple years easy.  With all the virus stay at home and social distancing just to keep busy I have hit the UFO's projects hot and heavy.
I must admit that quilting this piece was interesting.  I had all the appliqué pieces cut and the fuse was applied to them, but no pattern to see the layout of them.  Once I started to quilt it I just sort of went crazy.  About half way through I thought I had made a serious mistake, but it was too late so just kept going. 

So I just kept quilting and quilting.
Well two and a half YLI spools of thread, yes over 1,000 yards of thread and it is done.  In the end once I had it finished it looks pretty good.  I am still toying with quilting in the red areas of the nine patches.  The binding is on and hand sewn, but I could still do a bit more in that area.  Maybe, maybe not!
I did finish off the appliqué work on these four blocks this past week as well.  It will go to my guild's Warm Wrapping charity group.  Often times a piece like this is used to provide a charity with an auction or fundraising items.  It measures about 40 by 40, not a huge piece.  They will provide a back and quilt it and I provided the binding. 
My little quilting buddy Ginger just found the whole process just too much to deal with.  While I ran yards and yards of quilting thread through the sewing machine, she decided to drop in her tracks and take a nap.

  2. so enjoy seeing your projects!

  3. Both of your projects look fantastic! In looking at the table runner photos, I am baffled by the "serious quilting mistake" because I can't find anything wrong with it at all. Which is a great reminder that what seams like a huge problem while we're making a quilt often turns out to be not a big deal at all by the time we're finished!

  4. Hi Donnalee! Aww, Ginger looks like a great quilting buddy. She has her baby right next to her, to keep her calm and comforted since you were too busy. Great job on the UFO! I think it has just the right amount of quilting if you're soliciting opinions. HAHA! Thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne
