Design Wall Monday--March 12, 2012

Again my Design Wall is a blank because quilting is still going on for the UFO pick of the month, two tablerunners.

Two broken needles and multiple thread breaks and skipped stitches later, the quilting finally got done.  I don't know if it was the thread, the tension, the needle, or the fabric, but it was a big pain in the rear for such a small project.

The striped bias binding turned out really well I thought.  It is all machine applied.

I made a trip back to Pier 1 since I could not resist picking up the Bunny in a Carrot Car, but photography in my house at night is difficult due to poor lighting. (Isn't he adorable, Darlene?)

Here you can see his luxurious tail and sweet pink painted nose and ears.  My spring decor is just about complete--I just need to finish the other tablerunner.  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

With all that frustration, I am amazed at your tenacity to finish the runner! It is very pretty and the striped binding is the perfect touch!
Absolutely love the bunny in the carrot car. Alas, we no longer have a Pier 1 here. So cute!

Wow - a crisp and clean table runner just in time for Spring!! And Mr. Bunny is just the perfect companion to it! Don't know about you, Annie, but I can hardly wait for that first full day of Spring!
Cheers!

I wish Pier 1 was closer to me...That bunny in the carrot car is adorable and I need a centerpiece on my buffet...instead of the milk can of old wooden spoons ;)

I think the striped binding looks wonderful.(Im a big fan of stripes and dots for bindings)

Glad you went back to pick up that bunny and give him a good home. You would have been kicking yourself if you didnt....

Your table runner looks great, I love stripe bindings. If you ever find out why one quilt is a breeze to quilt and the next one a pain in the back side, please let me know.

Awww that's an adorable bunny but your table runner is even cuter. And the striped fabric binding is fabulous!
