Just in time for Easter, I finished the batik stripes table runner. A fast project, it took me longer than I expected only because I had other things going on. It turns out that college art projects take quite a bit of time! I used some Michael Miller folkloric material I had purchased last year as a backing. I also used some of the Kona Cotton Tiger Lily (color of the year) as the binding. I love how that looks.
A close -up of the back:
I did straight line quilting, about 1/2 inch apart, using a raspberry colored Aurifil thread. I am quite happy with how this turned out, and am anxious to cut into the additional batik stripe fabric I purchased (in different colorways!). The finished runner is long (I like overhang when I use it on my sofa table) and finished at 72 x 12 1/2. I think this will get lots of use this spring.
I am currently working on quilting a charity quilt, and am using the opportunity to tackle feathers. The feathers are turning out better than I expected for my first time! I hope to get this done to turn in at my guild meeting on Monday.
Have a nice weekend, a safe and happy St. Paddy's Day, and in the meantime, Wahoo wah!
