    well i am using only my stash from here until the new year....so i got these fabrics out and decided to make this for a gift...i am not really a fall type person but i actually really love how this turned out. I used a verigated gold and bronze thread for the fmq....hopefully you all are on your galloping horses when you look at that...i just did loops all over and a vine down the center.
    I know just the right person to gift this to and it will look lovely on her table.....as you can tell i need to do the binding...doing that after dinner but was running out of sun light...other then the binding this was started this afternoon and i took me a total of 3 hours ...had to rip some fmq out .....thanks for looking

    forgot to mention that the back is just the fall leaf print that is in the middle
    happy labor day

    It is easier to use the pillow case method of backing the spiral runner, stitching around the shape leave a opening and turn inside out, than doing a binding around the curve and points. Patty

    yes i saw thats the way the pattern says to do it....but i have never really been fond of the pillowcase method....i guess i like to do things the hard way lol....i have most of the binding done and i think it looks really nice

    I like the way you used the colors to keep the shape within the border. I have this pattern, but can't seem to put the fabrics/colors together. You did a nice job with the layout.
