Hi, In my last post I showed the placemat I made in these beautiful, fresh Amy Butler fabrics. Well, I've just finished this table runner to go with it. And although I say it myself I think it's great! It's only a short table runner so hasn't run very far - ha ha.
I did some what I call twirly quilting on it. It looks fine on the front but the stitches don't catch properly on the back. This is ok for somthing like this or a wall hanging but I want to quilt a bed quilt with free motion quilting and the stitches need to be good on the back and front. Well this leads to the fact that I need (want) a new machine! I have decided that it has to be a Bernina so I now have to save up some pennies to pay for one. I'm even doing some extra shifts at work to earn the money - I must be desperate!
