sewing day

I am working on finishing a project that I started last weekend.  It's not that big or complicated.  It's just a table runner.  But life gets in the way of our sewing sometimes.




This is the one that I asked Jenn to make for the shop.  I am making mine using a set of 5" charm squares of this fabric.




Reunion from Sweet Water by Moda.  I love the little banner fabric.  And just adore the green, navy and faded yellows.  I think I have a sister that might like it too.




I used a cream muslin for the side 2" strips, grey for the back, and the binding will be navy.




One of the prints has a subtle chevron pattern.  And that's how decided to use it for the quilting.  Cream thread on top, and grey thread on my bobbin.




The stitching is a little harder to see it on the front of the runner.  But I just love how it turned out.  And I did it!  I'll show it to you again when I get my binding on.  Maybe I'll even show you a picture of it on my table.
