Virtual Trunk Show #17: Runners

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well!  Many of you mentioned in yesterday’s post that runners are  your projects of choice when you think of “quick”, and more importantly for some, the reason you like runners is because runners are perfect for practicing free-motion quilting!  NOW – that’s music to my ears!  So I thought I should share with you some runners I have made or designed.  Click on quilt names for more pictures or information.

  1. Rosemary B here:
    I love all of these!
    Persian rug is my very very favorite. I just love the colors of that fabric, exciting and calming.

  2. Love the “slide show”! Runners are not only easier to FMQ on a DSM but it also is possible to quilt/stitch it as densely as I want without being concerned about possible stiffness/lack of drape.

  3. Are runners a particular American thing? They don’t seem to be a big thing here in the UK. I have made one but it annoys me more than anything else.

  4. Thanks for the wonderful slide show! Some were posts from my “before Wendy” days…love the tips on quilting around the applique, since that is what I will be doing a lot of in the near future!
