Design Wall Monday

After Saturday's quilt finish
I decided to finish this table runner.
I picked this top up when the quilt shop in Long Beach, WA was closing.
It was in the dresser that held all the scraps that I loaded up on.
I knew it would be a good piece to practice quilting.
I started at the end of February and became frustrated with thread breaks.
The blue and dark green quilted nice,
it's that green Sulky in the front that did not.
I powered through and just kept rethreading the needle.
After all I am in UFO Busting mode!
Thread, batting and backing scraps all being used up.

The quilting was finished, 
now to choose something for the binding.
I looked in my fat quarter bin and found this fun black and white batik.
I took almost a whole fat quarter to bind this table runnner.
The extra is added to the scrappy leftover binding roll that is waiting for it's next project. 
After some Sunday evening TV time, this one is marked off the long UFO list.
This is totally not my style but I'm going to use it
at the beach on the picnic table. 

to have my morning coffee with quilter friends.

Fun little table runner you have there. Your quilting looks great. I seem to have thread breakage at times, too, for no apparent reason. Great job busting another UFO!

Yea, you're cranking out the UFO finishes! I made a runner on Saturday. Not my Normal color. Had to FMQ, out of my comfort zone. Blogging surfing this am too!!

Very nice use of scraps to make a beautiful table runner.

What fun to have this little project finished! I simply can't use Sulky. It drives me batty! I quilt exclusively in Superior thread.
