An acquaintance got married on Saturday - congratulations to the lovely Tanumine and her handsome B!!! (pic of the happy couple is lifted from Leisha's blog). Since I heard they had wedding plans I've wanted to make them a table runner - just to let them know I thought about them on their big day. I was hoping Bernie would be back home so I could get it done fairly quickly, but no such luck. So for the first time in my quilting life I have finished a project completely by hand:
Three LeMoyne stars in a row. The light background is the same in all three blocks and also used in the outer border; the dark blue is the same in all the blocks and in the binding, but I have chosen three different light blues.
It is not very heavily quilted, a squiggly line in the inner border, a half LeMoyne star at either end, and an "echo" just inside the seam on the light blades on each star - hopefully it will hold up well
I am really pleased to see how much my hand quilting has improved.
Even the binding was attached by hand - need I say "sore fingers?" *lol* But it was finished in plenty of time and handed over to the maid of honor to bring along. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, and I hope the recipients will enjoy having it on their table :o)
