A finish.

I'm not big on actually totally finishing a quilt.  I love to finish the top, I occasionally have some tops basted to quilt myself, or have them long-arm quilted.  However, I almost never actually then get the binding on.  Strange, I know.
However, feast your eyes on this...

Totally finished, binding and all.  My little tablerunner. Done and dusted.  Ended up about 40" by 8".
Quilted all by myself

Here is my idea of quilting.  To see some inspired, talented quilting on a domestic sewing machine , have a look at my friend  Linda's Blog.
Just scroll down a bit to see how she's going machine quitling her own design onto her latest work of textile art.
And here in its final home.


  1. Your runner is perfect, Kerry! You did a lovely job of quilting it, and straight lines is ideal. I love how it looks in the window! Truly lovely! Thank you for the blog post love. I have just today finished quilting Bloom and will be posting about that soon. I wish you were on Instagram!

  2. Very pretty!! Looks good at the window!!
