Whole Cloth Quilted Table Runner

No automatic alt text available.

I bought this wonderful book. I've been looking through it and drooling over the beautiful quilting. The author includes many projects that not only helps you practice your longarm quilting but also gives the quilter a finished project to display. Her easier projects are whole cloth small quilts.

This picture is a little difficult to see but it's a whole cloth table runner with an on-point square. The author used thread the same color as the fabric. It hides those little mistakes that we would like to keep from being too obvious! (Nice tip!)

Here's my fabric all marked and ready to go! I'll have to load it tomorrow at the earliest. It's already so late. And thanks to the change in time, it's going to get dark so early. Can't wait to start working on it!

  1. I really find it more and more difficult the older i get to adjust to the early darkness; and time change.
    this whole cloth will be lovely--interesting--i gave my daughter her lap quilt (her b-day was the 16th of Oct but we weren't able to get together before Friday) and of all things she loved the plain whole cloth backing better than all those pieces I struggled to put together...go figure...hugs, Julierose

  2. Thanks, Julierose! Hope it comes out good! You can never tell what people are going to like about your quilt. I gave a quilt to a friend for her baby and she only shows the back of the quilt. It was a cartoon character! My piecing didn't impress her!
