Quilt With Us

I'm a procrastinator extraordinaire. The Quilt Show has a table runner contest and I've only ever finished 2 quilts. I have never made a table runner, and I decided to enter this contest.

So, what do you think?
Springtime Tulips I designed this in EQ6 and used a set of charm squares (RJR's Flora and Felines). I've never done anything like this before, so we are all very proud of me, lol...

Technically I designed the whole thing... traced the tulips from a copyright free image into EQ6 for the applique. I thread painted the tulips on (first time and pretty fun!) as I really wanted to do raw edge, some very pointy leaves!

Those angles were fun, I did use the binding miter ruler from Animas Quilts, frustrating of course, but I got better as I went along.

It was all a great learning experience.
