A finished table runner from scraps!

I finished this table runner (at least I think so) and I am so happy. It was from some leftover flying geese which I  made for another quilt.

Like most of the time, I quilted this on my Bernina 440QE.  I mostly used my walking foot but also my ruler foot for a very small piece.   As I worked, I found it was easier to do each side of a “goose” rather than twist around each one.  Here’s a picture of the back.  

I am finding more and more I love my “in the ditch”  quilting foot.  Its a new plate for my Bernina 440Q walking foot.   Also, it made it easy to go around the edge of the quilt with stitches by moving the needle a few “dots” either left or right of center. 

But I still wanted to do some  ruler work on  the inside of the stars.  It was so much easier than marking it!  I’m glad I did it.  Speaking of marking, I wasn’t sure about doing the shadow geese in the solid fabric, but I finally did it and am glad that I did.    I think it help completes the table runner.

This pattern was adapted from “Elegant Runner” by Terry Albers in Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts, Fall 2012.   I saved it knowing I had these flying geese to use up.

Another UFO finished for 2017!

    Great use of scraps and I agree that quilting the shadow geese was a lovely quilting decision.
