    Red face Stained Glass QAYG method

    I just finished a Brenda Henning method STained Glass Table Runner, turned out pretty nice with using a twin needle to apply the bias tape. Anybody else tried this? I'm teaching a class on it and any additional tips to incorporate into my teaching on this method would be wonderful....

    Fabulous work! I used to own a stained glass studio and this is wonderfully reminiscent of the real thing.

    What a beautiful quilt. I've never used my twin needle for anything, really wasn't sure what to do with it!

    Your runner is beautiful! I have used the double needle before but not sure if I have a picture of my project. I also purchased one of Brenda's books when we visited Alaska in 2005 & haven't used it yet but still have hopes, it's one with wildlife in it.

    Edited to add: When using the double needle you get kind of a serged look on the back so remember that if you're thinking of using it as the quilting.

    What a beautiful table runner! I love your bias binding! Your students will be so fortunate to have you as a teacher.

    OMG!!! How absolutely stunning that runner is. My machine does twin needles, but I have no idea how to do it or anything. Was it hard to do? You could write a book about this method. I'd buy it!!!! It's so gorgeous. I'm wishing I lived by you so I could take that class. Where can I get the pattern? Is it in a book? Who wrote it?

    I have both the pumpkin and pointsettia runners almost finished. They do look stunning. I will try to post pictures later.

    Thimblebug - my double needle does not cause a serged look on the back. Just looks like double line of straight quilting. Do you use two threads? I think if you use one thread and take it through both needles, that may cause the serged look. Try separate threads for each needle. See if that works.

    Georgeous - love the colors, the pattern and the whole concept. Is this your own pattern or a purchased one?
