UFO Sunday #11 & 12

Spend some more time on my table runner. This is turning into one of those more agonizing projects because it has been lying around for quite some time and I think I am just a bit over it. Seriously considered not finishing it...

Anyway, I quilted some lines in the major triangles with the walking foot


...and then stopped again...I might just leave it like that, put some lines in the outer border and be done with it.

I am completely stuck on ''how do I quilt this?'. The spaces of the background fabric are relatively small, so do not lend themselves to some of the filler designs (I think). That is why I did the lines, however that just emphasizes its strong geometric shapes. I think it needs something else.

Maybe I should put some pebbles in the remaining spaces...last time I did this table runner, I microstippled in the smaller areas. Then there is the outer border...why is this so difficult ?

Any ideas would be welcome.

  3. I like it so far! I wouldn't overdo it since the piecing is so unique. I think zippling in the thicker border would be cohesive to the piecing. I'd keep echo quilting in the rest of the white and just leave it at that! Just geterdone and off your plate. It's a pretty tablerunner:)

  4. Zippling...yes that could work. Thanks, will ponder a little bit more this week. Maybe it will get done for X-mas

  5. I agree, keep it simple. Echo quilt the white geometric areas and maybe meander or zipple the floral border lightly. Then call it DONE! :D

    1. Yes agree, this needs to be over and done with. Thanks for the suggestion

  6. Oh, I like what you did with the triangles outside the piecing with that block. I wish I'd thought of that with the bed scarf I'm working on.

    1. I often have the same experience when looking at other people's quilting. Well, there is always 'next time'. Thanks for stopping by.
