|Great Blue Heron runner|
19.5 x 46.5 inches
I have to admit it was just about the easiest table runner ever! One 13-inch WOF strip of Vicki's gradient fabric with a silhouette from some clip art. A 1.5-inch inner border of black Kona cotton was next, then a 3-inch border of turquoise batik and binding with the black Kona cotton. Easy Peasy!
It gave me the opportunity to try out some creative quilting. Believe it or not, I just used my walking foot. The lower half is quilted in wavy lines for water, there are some wispy vertical lines for reeds in the center around the heron, and the top has some looser wavy lines for sky.
Three rows of simple scallop are quilted in the border. It is a pre-set pattern on one of my machines that I stumbled upon recently and LOVE!
Thank you so much Vicki! The fabric was so nice to work with, and there's enough to make two more to give to a couple of charity raffles that are coming up here. Win, Win!
