Well now that my table runner for the EB Quilters recent swap has arrived safely at the lovely Leah's house, I can blog it. It turned out big, a massive 18 by 54 inchs but she wrote in her preferences that her dining room table is 80 inches long by 44 wide so thought I'd be okay. She also said she liked the style of Material Obsession so this runner is based on the pattern by them called Fanciful Flowers. This pattern is in their recent book and also an old copy of Quilters Companion which is where I got it from as I hadn't won my book when I first started sewing it! I did have plans to do swirly contrast quilting in the white around the tulip but was having hassles with my tension and running out of time for the mail deadline, so I just went with some echo stitching.
And below is the lovely runner I recieved from Sandi. Pretty pastels and white stars, its lovely! Fits in perfectly with the colourful decor of our house. She enclosed stickers and pencils for the girls and chocolates for Daz and I too share, which was very sweet of her. Thanks Sandi!
