A finish and another gift made
I finished this table runner nice and quick. The binding happened while watching tv the other evening. It felt good to use up some of my French General hoard. It is a funny thing that I have such a stack of French General fabrics and yet rarely use it. I really do think that my fabric tastes have evolved since I first started stock piling it. I still like it but I don't really see it in a quilt. At least not for me. It looks quite nice in a table runner though.
The fabulous thing about table runners is that you get to use up batting scraps! I have a huge pile of potential table runners! The other fabulous thing about table runners is how quickly they quilt up. Love that!
I quilted this simply with some gorgeous Aurifil 40 wt. It has a beautiful sheen to it and the heavier weight allows the quilting to really sparkle.
Oh! I ordered some labels awhile ago! They look quite official!
Linking up with Finish it up Friday at Amanda Jean's. Off to quilt guild tonight. So much fun!
