January Challenge - one down.....

My Red&White Tablerunner is finshed!!!
When I'm doing several projects intensively, like I am for the time beeing - it seems like I never will see the end of it. Apparently there is an end - within reach too.

The quilting is done in-the-ditch and by freehand on the middle section.
I think it compliments the fabric quite well.....

I chose to sew the tabelerunner together in-side-out before quilting it and then, instead of using binding, I sewed on lace for a finishing touch.....
I have my other WISPs lined up - so I should, hopefully, see the end of them during this week and weekend.

Just to add some pressure on myself I've decided to finish one more thing by the end of January. This will be the sister to the pillow I made in October.

I never set out to win this challenge;
#1 I'm working TOO SLOW
#2 It occured to me that I don't have enough UFOs/WISPs
(due to #1 - even over years...)
But I did want to see if I could bind myself to a month of finishing unfinished buisness........ I must say that bringing something to an end is very motivating and I enjoy it tremendously!!!!

Happy sewing to you all :o)

  2. Oh my gosh this turned out gorgeous!! I love it, I wish I had time to make one !!

  3. Very cute table runner :-)

  4. Nydelig løper du har sydd! Rødt og hvitt er en favoritt hos meg! Kommer stadig tilbake til de fargene. Ja, det er sant, det er virkelig tilfredsstillende å se en ting bli helt ferdig.
    Lykke til videre med neste prosjekt!

  5. The table runner is GORGEOUS!! Lovely finish there, Yvonne. And I really like the use of lace rather than a traditional binding technique. The whole of it looks wonderfully antique and all the red & white is so charming. One of you WIPs has fabric very much to ones I was just working with! ;o) Have fun! ((HUGS))

  6. Virkelig NYDELIG løper du har sydd og quilta. Den falt jeg for, herlige farger du har brukt. :)

  7. Woohoo! Well done on the finish! And the table runner is beautiful - a great touch that lace!

    Looks like there will be another very pretty cushion! And how is that dissapearing 9-patch coming along? :o)

    Take care! Talk soon!

  8. Very nice table runner - love the lace. Isn't it satisfying to finish a WISP?

  9. Oh, your runner is so beautiful. I love the pinks. Well done!

  10. Kjempefin løper du har laget i flotte farger. Det er deilig å å ha få UFO. Jeg er snart på slutten av mine, og da kan jeg endelig begynne på noe nytt. Ha ei fin helg.
