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……
