    My latest projects

    I made a St Paddy's Day Table Runner for DIL and son. It still needs quilting and binding. The only thing I am good at is SID. Would like to try something easy so I can get it in the mail this week. Any easy suggestions is welcome. I also made a wreath for them and a afghan for a dear friends GD. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Wonderful table runner. You done good on it. A simple cross hatch would go fast for quilting & easy to do. Also echo stitching would work & is also easy. If you are good at stitch in the ditch, you could do the echo with no problam. That is just 1/4 inch away from the ditch.

    Great runner! I also like the idea of echo quilting. If you want to attempt some FMQ, I would strongly suggest that you do a bit of practice on some scrap sandwiches first, rather than trying a new techinque on this great topper.

    I love it! I think if it were me I would still SID For this project. If your heart is set on trying somthing new, maybe stipple clovers in the white part of block or green border... maybe both. If nervous you could use clear thread. Whatcha think?
