Quilt With Us

As I mentioned in a recent post, I was finishing up a table runner for an impromptu competition within our guild.  The essence of the rules were that it had to be done by December 16, be within a certain size, and have three stars on it.  Beyond that it was, "Katie, bar the door!"  So I elected to use some fabulous green fabric I had laying around in my stash and make my "star" a starburst.  Embellishment was allowed, so I added three buttons.  The colors are not quite as true as they should be (you know how that is), but here are the photos of the finished product:

Oh my how pretty! You are the winner in my book.!

Yes, my made-up design, such as it is.  Pretty simple, really.  The buttons were a serendipitous find after the table runner was finished - it still needed something.

It's stunning with the perfect colors with your gold thread. Is this your design? Love the buttons and orange within the yellow starburst. It's great to have what you want in your stash and be able to use some of it. Hope that you win.

I love it Carol Ann.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you win the prize as it would be well deserved.

What a great project!  You have a wonderful runner.

Roxann, yes, I used gold metallic thread for the starburt "rays."  It doesn't show well in the photograph, but it is Sulky Gold thread.  If you try it, be sure to use a sewing machine needle labeled for metallic thread -- Works like a charm.

Wow!  This is really a great table runner!  Good luck!  I hope you win!

Nice! The green fabric IS fabulous! I like the thread you chose, it looks like it has a tinsel to it. And I like your sewing cabinet too! Good luck!
