Over the past week I have been working on my pineapple blossom tablerunner and am pleased to say that it is finished. The frixon pen and iron were certainly given a workout while trying to decide on how to quilt it. It is bright and vibrant so hence it has been called "A Study in Colour".
All of the batik fabrics had been given to me. The black as well as the backing fabric have been in my stash for sometime so a no cost runner. Got to be happy with that.
This was my nominated OMG for November. Thank you Patty for giving us the opportunity to share our finishes.
Before ending I would like to share with you what I saw outside the community hall last week where my large quilting group meet once a month.
On closer inspection when mum hopped off the nest there were 13 eggs she was sitting on. Some of the eggs have hatched and you can see a few yellow ducklings snuggling in.
Poor little things. I hope that they survive but mum has picked a busy, noisy, exposed spot to set up her nest.

Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
Gorgeous, gorgeous table runner. I love deep vibrant colors like those. Also, the ducklings are cute!
Love your runner! And how adorable, babies!!
Fabulous bright tablerunner...
Hope Mum and babies stay safe..
Love the table runner! Birds do make their nests where ever they like!
Its perfect!! I just love that black making those colors pop!!
That is sooo pretty! It looks like stained glass
Congrats on attaining your goal for the month. It looks SEW bright and cheerful!!
I love the runner. It will look so good on your outside table.
Beautiful! Hope those ducklings are all ok.
love the table runner.... hope the duck and ducklings all do well....
Great use of colors on your wonderful runner. And, free is always good. Hope the duck and ducklings can handle the traffic.
Love your runner Such vibrant colours
Well done on the table runner finish, it is beautiful. Love the colours. Hopefully once the ducklings are all hatched they will be taken somewhere safe.
Congrats on your finish! Is that a wild duck??
It is interesting where she created her home for her new babies. I hope all goes well for them.
Yay on your finish!!!
A gorgeous runner and super-cute ducklings.
I LoVe the table runner. It looks fantastic.
Hope all still good with the ducks...xox
What a stunning table runner! I love how the black squares make a path for the eye to travel along through all those vibrant colours. Super dynamic!
Your runner is so pretty. I love how the layout and colors create a star in the center. But I think you're calling that a pineapple blossom, right?)
I hope the duck and ducklings survive uninterrupted. Birds sometimes put their nests in the strangest places. I once walked past a small tree on my way to work and saw a streamer hanging from one of the branches. When I got closer and looked up I saw that a bird had built a nest. Nothing like attracting attention when you really want to hide and be safe.
Your runner is well named, looks great, and hope mum and her babies does well
It's just gorgeous! I've had table runners on my mind lately.
Beautiful table runner, I love how the colors pop against the black.
Beautiful! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.
