Oops! I didn't mean to go all week without blogging; I've been quilting the lace on the table runner. Last night I finished and bound it, and I'm relieved it's done.
The photo above is the same piece as the last one I showed, but this time from the front and almost complete.
I wasn't entirely sold on the the darker threads, so only used them a couple of times in the largest doilies, then set them aside. Above (back) and below (front detail) are one of the middle-sized doilies. I really like the swirl effect in the centre of this one; it just evolved as I started quilting - I had no pre-conceived vision of how it would look when done.
The finished table runner is 14 x 40in, and there are 99,000 stitches in it!
As before, it's all hand-guided, free-motion quilting.
I'm linking up with Leah's FMQ Friday.
