  1. Pillow runner instead of shams

    by , 02-26-2015 at 05:48 AM
    I have found that I like to use what I would call a pillow runner instead of making shams or making the quilt big enough to cover the pillows. Similar to a bed runner that you see in the end hotels only smaller. For a queen size bed I make it about 24 x 66. Using this is much easier when making the bed too.

Size:  1.36 MBThis took me a year to hand piece and sew the top together. I took a break and thought about how I would quilt it and this took a few months. I decided that I would hand quilt it. I took it to a local sewing shop and rented a long arm machine to baste it together. I hand quilted around each of the flowers and the individual centers. I appliqued the edges to a plain border. I echo quilted 5 rows around the outer flowers for the border.
