"I'd rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck."
I love this quote.
I'd rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck. By Emma Goldman.
With this quote in mind I completed this table runner than just needed the quilting,binding and backing put on. Oh plus the machine embroidery. So I guess quite a lot really.
I machine embroidered two designs which were from a Brother Embroidery Card.
I could have done these as part of the quilting but wasn't too sure how it would work out, better to be safe and embroider them without the wadding and backing. I then stitched in the ditch around each block. I didn't worry about doing a border for this runner. I used some more of the dyed calico (brown onion skins) for the binding and backing. Another UFO completed.
