After stitching the last of the binding down today, I had some concerns about the unquilted print portions since they seemed too puffy, so I added more stitches.
Pretty uncontrolled serpentine quilting there--but it did solve my worry. The tablerunner then got its first wash and dry.
I love the almost argyle look to the tablerunner (Sweet Escape, by Heather Mulder Peterson, On the Run pattern booklet).
And the great texture from the all of the quilting.
There was no bleeding from the charm squares and they didn't shrink more than expected, thankfully.
The plain white backing shows the quilting well. I hope the recipient likes it too--this is a gift for the caterer for Elaine's wedding. Elaine sent out all the invitations this week and RSVPs are already showing up in their mailbox. She likes to cross items off lists too :)
