What a Whit of a table runner!

This is my entry for this month AYOS using the Whit pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. that you can see here. Instead of a little quilt I made 60 different teeny tiny flying geese and turned them  into a table runner. I fussy cut these little guys just like I fussy cut the bigger ones I working on for my bed size Halloween quilt that I showed yesterday. If you click on the picture and make it bigger you can see spiders, eyeballs, bats, ghosts, an owl, candy corn, a mummy and even the date of Halloween - October 31 - so I don't ever forget - LOL!

Here it is from two different angles -




I wasn't sure how to quilt it as it is quite busy and then I got the idea to quilt a spider web over teeny tiny flying geese. I didn't want to mark on the front so I turned it over and sketched some lines on the back and quilted it on the back with my variegated thread in the bobbin.


It isn't real noticeable on the front but I know it is there and that's enough for me. I can't wait to put this on my dining room table. I think the polka dot pumpkin my son gave me will be the perfect topper, don 't you?


happy stitching-

  3. Your quilting is so perfect on this! It must have taken you a while to fussy cut your flying geese fabrics, but they look great.
