Table Runners - Cherry Christmas

I have been back working on my Christmas Table Runners.



The first one I quilted "in the ditch".

Then decided that I needed to get out side my comfort zone
and try some FMQ with some new settings that I have for my machine.




I did it and at last have the right settings for my machine.
It has only taken me 12+ months!

As you can see on the top one, the binding was almost completed.
Oh well, I went and added some FMQ anyway :o)




I like it more now :o)
I am also liking my machine that little bit more now that we can work together
and play with some more FMQ.




All four table runners are quilted and I am slowly working on hand stitching the binding.




I am looking forward to sharing them with you very soon.

hugs, Sharon

  16. Congratulations Sharon, great results. I think FMQ is the final frontier of quilting where so far I am too scared to go because I don't know what's out there or what will happen if I do! It will be on the 'to-do' list for next year again though. Tracee xx
