    I just made this table runner top today out of a charm pack called Trick or Treat Smell My Feet. I had to reverse the dark and light fabrics because there were way more darks in the pack. It is very scrappy, but I did try to give it a little bit of a sense of balance with color placement. The pattern is called Chicken Feet by This and That. The finished size is 15 3/4 X 26 1/4". (I know I need to square up my corner triangles :-) )

    My question to you all is---how should I quilt this?? And what color thread would you use to quilt it?? I want to get in finished quickly so I can get it on the table and go on to the next project.

    I'm kinda liking the trend towards the big stitch in dark thicker thread lately that I've seen in some shops locally. It's a larger than usual hand stitch, like a utility stitch. Very charming and rustic.

    Very cute! If you're in a hurry, I think I'd just machine stitch in the ditch. The fabrics are your real star on this project, not the quilting. And you may want to wash it frequently, so machine quilting, I would think, would be your best bet.

    Well, how about feet since that's in the name? Maybe a row of little feet and another of little noses? You could draw the pattern on your tablerunner and then free motion.

    Just a thought.

    i would just meander, that way the "puffiness" is uniform and I would use a verigated thread in the halloween colors if you can find it!

    Steph I like the varigated thread idea--I am going to the quilt shop tomorrow and will look for some then.

    Thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions. I am still thinking about the quilting. I am going to the quilt shop tomorrow to buy a black to use for the binding. I already bought backing fabric and was originally going to use it for binding too, but have now changed my mind--isn't that a girl's perogative? :-) Besides, it is a great excuse to go back to the quilt shop!!
