Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Very nice! I'm about to start on my first runner. Hopefully I'll get finished in time for Christmas.
What pattern are you using?Originally Posted by luvabargain
I've said it before, but oh, that cat is gorgeous!
Table runner is nice, too, but hey, what's important here? The cat, of course!
Okay, the table runner really is nice. Like your pattern and especially the border fabric!
Beautiful Joyce!! :) And it looks like your quilting companion agrees! LOL
I'm going to do the Christmas Wonderland table runner by Maggie & Sharon. It's a free pattern I found online and will go nicely with the Christmas tree quilt I plan on making. I think.
Love your cat's tablerunner. I like how you used fancy stitching for the quilting. Did you do this with the feed dogs up or down? I cannot for the life of me do FMQ--too anal. Maybe this is something I could do. Your runner is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your picture.

Feed dogs were up -- you know all those fancy stitches you've never used on your sewing machine? Well, these were some of mine :D :D I used a big open toed foot and tried out various lengths and widths with the different stitches. It was fun! (I can't do FMQ either.....)
Love it when you post pics sewjoyce because it's always a "twofer". I get to oogle the handsome Emile and get to see your lovely work. This table runner is very pretty, love the colors and especially like the fancy stitching accenting some of the piecing.
