I am so excited to have these fun Improv Table Runners all finished and ready to be used on my table, I guess I just need to wait for fall now :) I finished the bindings on New Years Eve so technically, these are some of my last finishes of 2016!! Yippee :)
These table runners were a result of the scraps from cutting out another project. You can see my process of making them in this blog post
;) These were so much fun to make. I don't often just start stitching without an end plan, but it was a really great exercise in just seeing where it goes and a whole lot of fun, once I got myself to stop worrying about what it would turn out like in the end.
The fabrics are Desert Bloom by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda and I just love the wonderful fall colors and prints!!! They just warm you up inside, and considering I took these pictures in -3 degrees outside, I could seriously use the warming up ;)
I quilted these with some simple matchstick straight-ish lines. This was the first time I tried matchstick quilting on the long arm and I just loved it!!! It was so fast and so, so, much fun. And I just love the wonderful yummy texture it adds to the tops ;)
And then I finished them off with a nice navy binding that I thinks frames them just perfectly ;) These were a lot of fun to make and made me realize I need to do more Improv without a plan projects. They really are just wonderful to see where the scraps just take you and I am so happy with how they turned out ;)
Now I just have to wait about 10 months to use them ;) I guess I will just say I am super prepared for Fall 2017!!!
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
