Shoo Fly Table Runner

Today I just could not face any more applique. I know I'll be ready to work on it again soon, so instead I allowed myself to start something else.

I made up a 'Shoo Fly Table Runner'. I love these things, and I just loooove the feature fabric in it. I've put it in my Etsy store. Because I clearly need to supplement my stash, I'm using up bits and pieces and any funds I accumulate I'm going to put toward stash enhancement. That's the plan!

I also made up a further four Shoo Fly blocks, and when I have the chance I'll quilt them up and bind them to be used as coasters.

For the runner, I used my favourite free motion quilting - you all have seen it before so many times - the peacock feathers. And since I loved the results so much from when I used the silver flecked thread in the bobbin, I decided I'd do it again. I'm so glad I found the little sticker that told me it was to be used in the bobbin. I seriously thought I'd purchased $40.00 worth of rubbish thread. Yay me ... if all else fails ... read the directions :-)

I think I'll try and get in a little applique before I go to bed ... I didn't think I would want to ... but I think it's calling me ... :-)
