Matchstick Quilting

It is a the end of a long weekend here in Western Australia. Today was "WA Day". An anniversary that "commemorates the foundation of the Swan River Colony near Perth by European settlers." Personally to me it means a sleep in till 8, another coffee in bed and some sewing time! So I got stuck into quilting my latest tablerunner. First I did white......

Then I added pale green between the gaps and leaving more gaps to add in some pale blue.

It has created a great texture. I brought myself a copy of Modern Machine Quilting for my birthday a few weeks ago and apparently this is called Matchstick Quilting. Well there you go, I learnt something new today. :)

Wow! When I grow up I want to be able to quilt on my domestic machine like you. It looks fabulous.

Beautiful!! Like the multicolor threads - blues and greens are among my favorites.
