Finally, I'm Sewing!


Hooray! It's Saturday! And I'm at home and have some sewing time. Last night I whipped up this table runner, and I quilted it this morning. (Binding not yet attached.)

It is not at all how I had pictured it, and I don't like how there is too much color and you can't even see the pattern that well. I'm going to make another one, with better color choices and contrasts. But I am wondering... does anyone like it this way? For example, if I put it in our small quilt auction at my guild's show, do you think anyone would bid on it?

I quilted boldy in white around the three middle quares to try to set them off. It helped.... a little.

It rained overnight and has that fall, rainy chill in the air today. Nice day to stay inside and sew. I hope to report more progress by the end of the weekend.

Hi Carol, I LIKE IT! I think the colors are just fine, and if the quilting doesn't show that much, it really is only the colors one sees from a distance anyway.
Wanted to pop over and tell you the book and it's new travel bag are the feature on the Train blog. It's on the move again, headed to Jeanne at Spiral.
I've advised the future readers that if unable to send it onward or when it's journey runs out, it should be returned to you. That ok?
Enjoy the saturday of sewing...and yes, damp and brrrr! Big hugs, Finn

I like it very much. Love the bright colours and how you've used the embroidery stitches too. I certainly think folk will bid for it !
