Pretty excited to have actually made the deadline for my January One Monthly Goal Link Up! This bed runner project was a challenge for me and I'm so glad I stuck it out.
The quilting was done entirely in the hoop on my embroidery machine. I watched a lot of YouTube videos and just decided to go for it.
I bumped up the contrast in this photo so you can see the quilting a little better.
The binding is also done entirely by machine. A good place to try out those fancy stitches. Since this is intended to be a bed runner I anticipate that it might get a fair amount of washing so I need it to be sturdy.
Hard to see the quilting but I'm happy with three of the four corners. I quilted the corners first and messed up the placement. I should have waited to quilt the corners until after I had done the borders, it would have been easier to determine where the corners should be relative to the borders. Lesson learned.
