Just a small success, but a success nonetheless.
I bought this table runner as a kit. I loved the bright colours! The background is also a batik - mostly white, with a little purple. We have a table in our front entryway, and my goal is to make a table runner for every season and/or holiday. So far, I have Christmas, summer, autumn and now spring.
I quilted this with a mulitcoloured pastel variegated thread. I did loopy things to look like petals in the coloured parts, and an all-over meander in the background. When it came to pick a fabric for the border, I was looking for green, to look like the leaves or branches going with the flowers. I found a green batik that has the exact shades of blue and purple in it as in the quilt itself. Perfect!
I'm still working on my son's Blue Bayou quilt - that I've been wanting to finish all year. I am quilting it now, so should have it done shortly. (Shortly, for me, means a couple weeks!)
