I've been plodding my way through this quilted table runner this week. Doing a bit at a time, when Nicholas lets me. I wanted something nice and bright, but at the same time "me" for our dining table.
Unfortunately my sewing has been hampered by a migrane this week that knocked me out for a day or two, I am just now starting to feel a bit better with most of the heaviness that a migrane brings, gone. We are still sleeping in 2-3 hour cycles through the night as Nicholas hasn't realised that there is a difference between day-time and night-time sleeping. I had forgotten what caring for a screaming baby was like with a migraine ...
As you can see, I still have to bind it, but doesn't it look great on my Jarrah table?
I picked up a metre of this gorgeous Japanese print from the Kimono Girls at the Australasian Quilt Convention and I used some Jelly Roll Solids from Green Fairy. The orange band is from the Haunted House range of fabric. The grey/black polka dot is from Spotlight, and having worked with it, I dislike it! It will be interesting to see how it survives a wash.
