Summer Breeze table runner
The colors & prints are just so fresh and happy. There are also some greens in the line, I just didn't use them for this. I love the blue print I used for the binding. I might use it and the white print with little blue flowers to make a dress or shirt for K*.
I totally ran out of yellow thread when I was about 2/3 done with the machine quilting, so I had to stop and run to the fabric store. When I was almost done attatching the binding, I ran out of blue thread with about two inches left. Luckily, I had enough on the bobbin left to wind some back onto the spool and finish it up. I also broke two needles while attatching the binding. One time the tip totally bent sideways and the next time the tip snapped off. I put the denim needle in after that.
It was cloudy yesterday and today, but about 10 minutes after I took the pictures, the clouds cleared out and the sun is a shining as it gets ready to set. So refreshing after it's been so rainy, cloudy and drab the last few days.
I made another table runner as a Christmas gift, a top of a table runner and have enoguh scraps for another one out of Sweetwater's Hometown that I'll post about all in one post when I'm done with all three.
