Jill has been busy the last few months making table runners as gifts. This one is off overseas to family, this will give them a wee taste of NZ with the pohutukawa. Some of my customers get me to make & attach the binding as Jill did. I pinned a small section of the binding back so you could get an idea of the finished look.
As you can see from the photo ( don't be shy if you want to click on any of Quiltme's photo's for more close ups ) I did simple straight stitch using Signature variegated thread & a swirl on the squares.
Rachel has been working away on a BOM from The Country Yard , called Saltbox Farm, designed by
Natalie Bird from The Birdhouse . You may remember I quilted the shop sample.
A feather for the border, Rachel did her border slightly different from the original.
A few half square triangles were added to two corners on the border. Rachel likes stipple & cross hatching. If you don't ask, you might not get!
I used mainly Madeira polyneon threads.
a nice one under the old apple tree.
Well Rachel, I hope you like it & you are happy with seeing your quilt on my blog before you pick it up? After all that's what you asked me to do.
