“My Funky Pine Trees” table runner is done. I am glad as it has been a UFO for quite some time. This was both my One Monthly Goal and one of my UFOs for my APQResolution and my 2018FQLAQ1. I have to confess, some of those fabrics have been favorites of mine for a long time. I loved using them again, and for many of them, it is their last appearance.
I heard Beth Helfter at Rising Star Quilters Guild many moons ago. I bought the pattern, I did a little and then I got stuck. I don’t think the style is really me; that was what made it hard. I like it done a whole lot more than I liked it half way done. Trying new things, learning new techniques, new approaches is something I like to do. I have never put jewels on a quilt before, but I rather like it. I did it the simple way with Swarovski flatback crystals, like these and an embellishing glue. I used my tweezers to place them. Worked rather well, if I may say so.
