I was at a quilting retreat and managed to get my head around foundation piecing. Whilst I was at the retreat I did start a bedrunner using up scraps I had left over from another quilt that I had finished several years ago. As previously reported back in March I had spent many nights removing the papers from my crossed canoes and I can now proudly say that it is completed and sits at the end of our bed keeping our toes nice and warm on these rather chilly nights that we have been having lately.
The only fabric that I had to buy for this project was the offwhite and the blue border fabric which depicts water.
The first picture is a close up of the canoes and in the second one it is pegged across several garden chairs showing the length of the bedrunner.
I am also just about at completion stage of a mystery quilt that I am working on for a challenge issued by my quilting group. I hope to be back very soon with piccies of that.
In the meantime happy sewing.
What an effective pattern Karen!:) It looks wonderful.
Wow, your bed runner looks amazing -canoes, wow! Hugs from Donna in Brisbane.
