Thread: Remember the room that needs a mini-makeover and the 2 little pillows that called for more? Well, bed runner to the rescue!

    Well, here's my attempt at my first bed runner. I still need to quilt it but I wanted to get your take as to how this is coming along. (I deliberately made it shorter than most because I didn't want to cover up the nice scalloped edges of the quilt). AND for those of you that quilt on a regular (read: very non-fancy basic) sewing machine, how would you quilt this if this were your first attempt at FMQ? I'm biting the bullet and trying my hand at this on this bed runner. I figure since it's for myself and not being given away...it's a good place to start. ;-) Oh, and what color binding would you suggest?

    Once this is done, I'm going to just sit awhile on this project so ideas might come to me on the wall hanging and/or head board ideas for the head of the bed. As you can see it's bare. I'll put an old picture up in the meantime.

    Thanks for any input you have! Karen

    This was my first attempt at raw edge applique, tube piecing and making yoyo's. Such fun!

    The flowers are called French Roses and will fray nicely when washed

    The bed runner is fabulous! I love the buttons and the yo yo's. Good job.

    Sorry, can't help with the FMQ ideas -- haven't tried that. I would probably hand quilt this piece instead. I like to hand quilt small things, to keep practicing.

    Good luck!

    How complex do you want to quilt? If you want something simple, you could do a simple meander with a small flower thrown in here and there. It will be much easier to quilt if you remove the buttons and yo yo's and re-attach them after quilting.

    I wondered about the buttons and yoyo's but figured I'll just quilt around them. I really, really don't want to remove them at this point if I can help it!
