Zig Zig Table runner…….

With the summer vacations nearing  I am eagerly looking forward for our trip to India.  Getting ready for vacation means shopping, purchasing gifts, chocolates ………….  And now that I am actively sewing, I thought why not make some gifts with a personal touch.

And what better than a table runner.  After my hand quilting lessons, I wanted to try something on my own, but had decided I would use my sewing machine to make the patches.   And finally I made a table runner with zig-zag patches.  This design is by Sue Harvey. ( I am sorry I din’t save the website)


It was much quicker than hand quilting,  though I dint do any quilting stitches on the runner, I have used batting to give it a little thickness.  My binding still need more practice and perfection but I was happy with the result. I also gained more confidence. 

A close look at my patches….


It took a lot of time deciding with fabric to use, and still  I feel the combo could have been better, but then I am still learning.

One more closer look at my runner……
