Hour Glass Table Runner

Yup, it’s done. Yesterday I just couldn’t stop my self to finish it.  I settled for burnt orange backing and I used thin foam as a batting (still no luck with the batting, the company I wrote to only take bulk orders ). For the binding, I was thinking of a lime green fabric, but I didn’t have it in stock and I went for the 2nd best, the green polkadots. I guess it’s not look bad..don’t you think?

I pieced the squares using my DIY Quilting Rulers. Well, I must say I’m quite happy with it. I guess I will make a bigger one:). 
This one I quilted by machine. I was thinking of doing free motion but not sure how will I do it since I don’t have a proper shoe for that. I think I will do small quilt (maybe a pot holder?) and will use it as a practice piece for my free motion.

I ‘found’ this nice corner in my SIL’s drawing room where it has a perfect lighting in the afternoon


Now, I already thinking of another runner project to try, but I got to finish few custom orders and I saw  SKIRT WEEK at Crafterhours. I don’t know whether I will be able to make one but I really  want to try. As it is I got several fabrics which I thought I’ll make skirts. PLUS…check out the PRIZES…..Hmmm…let’s see….


Until then……happy crafting
