    This table runner is the first quilty thing that I have actually finished and finally had the courage to drop the feed dogs and quilt it myself.

    The blocks are some things that I'm experimenting with for future projects.

    Very nice. Your free motion quilting is great, I am having a lot of trouble getting the knack of that.

    Well done, your quilting really flows nicely and the stitching looks perfect. You really have an eye for colour, thanks for sharing your work.

    Thank you all for your kind comments...I did lots of little sandwichs for practice and a dog bed cover out of an old sheet (UFO).

    The flow of the stitch pattern was helped along by a stencil, pounce pad and an air erase marker. I need more muscle memory build up or something....to be able to do it on the fly without coverage being uneven or just getting lost.
