First finish of 2013!

So glad to say that I managed to finish my first goal of the year!!

If you remember I made it my goal to finish my two-sided table runner for the Sew Sew Modern Swap. I had hoped to make this my FMQ debut (HA!) but that did not happen... nor did my attempt at wavy quilting... apparently my zig-zag doesn't lend itself to that. So I went with "organic straight lines" which is quilter language for "artistic license". It also replaces the language I was using as I seam-ripped SEVEN times... wowza!

organic straight lines
I used a varigated thread for the first time and I love the look! I will have to pick up some more when I see it again.

bound and ready to send!
I really enjoyed making this runner and I hope my partner likes it.

I am linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes!

  1. That's awesome!

    I'm always trying to talk myself into trying more FMQ but it's scary! And what if I ruin something I like!

  2. I LOVE it, and I love variegated threads. Nice work!

  3. Ow seven times!!!! It turned out beautifully in the end if that is any consolation :)

  4. Looks wonderful! Very nicely done!

  5. So cute! I just love that.

  6. those leaves on the left are really cool! love the pattern.


Thanks for your two cents!
