Here it is! The Snow Table Runner for my mom. I fussy cut the snowmen so that each one faces people sitting at the table. I think its kinda cute.
I machine appliqued the snowflakes down with a straight stitch. I see lots of quilters doing it this way and I like the look.
I tried out a new batting for this runner. I wanted a super thin batting, and Joanns is now carrying a 50-50 mix of cotton and....SOY! I've not seen soy batting, but this was the thinnest and softest....oh, so soft!...batting ever. I did not even have to use my walking foot for the machine quilting. I will be using it again. The only downside is that it was only in a natural color; I did not see it in white.
Here is my "just playing' mini quilt. I finished it as a top. It measures 14" X 17". Those little tiny squares that border the quilt were a bit challenging; my old machine would have sucked them right down into the feed dogs, but the Juki, well, let's just say it runs smoooooooth!
Daughter has claimed the mini quilt for her American Girl Doll collection. She even had Kirsten try it out, and it is the perfect size! Now I need to get it quilted.
I also made more mini nine patch squares this week, but I have no picture of those. I think I have 190 finished now. I am trying to decide on the setting, so stay tuned!
