Well I finished the quilting and binding on Tuesday and I love, love, love it! I don't often take a whole day to quilt a table runner but I just couldn't stop myself. I started by outlining the blocks and the flowers. Then I marked a grid in the white setting triangles with my Clover Fine Washout Marker (tested first, of course). I stitched those lines with Superior's Bottom Line thread in white.
It looked fine but I wanted more 'punch'. I had a quilt longarmed by a local quilter a couple of years ago and she used a 'back and forth' design in some of the blocks. I loved how those areas receded and the around that stitching were higher. So I decided to give it a try.
I marked the squares that I wanted to STITCH IN with my Clover Air Erasable Marker (of course I tested it on the fabric first to be SURE it would fade away).
I did more quilting on this piece. I'll tell you about the other parts next week.
The workshop is on Saturday, March 12, 10 am - 3 pm.
