I love all things purple, so I was thrilled that Pantone's Colour of the Year was Radiant Orchid. I discovered there is a Radiant Orchid Challenge at On the Windy Side (the link is in the side bar), and I knew I had to enter.
The Challenge linky is next week, so this week, I need to get my Polly's Posies quilted and bound.
I don't know about you, but I hate to waste batting, so this morning, I was joining scraps together to make a piece big enough for the table runner. I lay one piece on top of the other, with a slight overlap, use my ruler and rotary cutter to make a straight line to join them, and then use my stitch-in-the-ditch/ edge joining foot, to sew them together.
I marked my runner with some lines before I basted it to the batting. I am not good a free motion quilting ( I don't practice enough) so I have it marked in straight lines.
It is now basted and ready to go.
I am linking up to Needlework Tuesday and WIP Wednesday.
