Freemotion By The River hosted the giveaway. That's the completed table runner pictured above. The pattern, Batik Scrappy table runner, is designed by Connie. The batting is Warm N' Natural©, and the quilting is machine meandering with a taupe color thread that blends well. The backing is the same batik fabric as the binding. Sewn size is: 14"X40". Tradewinds is so lush and vivid, and I absolutely love it. 'See the fish, shells and seahorses in the batik designs? It's very beachy and calming. Sending more thanks to Connie.

Freemotion By The River. 'More photos when it is completed. My daughter Amanda is going to bring my gift soon, as she lives in TN and was afraid it would get broken via the mail. Mother, Janice and family all gave me fabric. Oh yeah, we know what that means: fabric for the quilt-alongs. The cute fabric purse and mug coaster are from Diane of: Lavender Dreams. She also included a cute 2017 calendar. Wow, all such perfect gifts. Sending heartfelt thanks to you all. Family and friends are most important of all, and the gifts are excellent extras. Prim blessings.

My background machine stitching is cloud-shaped on the top area and meandering on mid area. The lower section, where the fish are, has wavy lines quilting. The batting for the main quilt is Warm N' Natural©, and the trapunto batting is a higher loft from another company. The crescent moon (an added applique) & the houses are the areas that are trapunto quilted. Can you see that they are raised? To see close-ups and the backing, follow the link below my signature.

Sew Fresh Quilts. The completed quilt measures 42"X50", and is backed with an aqua geometric print fabric. The binding is my favorite color, kelly green. Simple machine meandering quilting was done. Batting is Warm N" White©. I did take some liberty on the lowest right corner block. That one features a fussy cut Grinch® fabric, and is actually paying homage to an actual sweater that I have had for many years. Be sure to go visit Sew Fresh Quilts for some fun activities and great quilting tips. Thank you Lorna, for this awesome QAL as well as for the never-ending link party. There is also a Flickr group for this QAL. 'Want to see this quilt's backing? Follow the link below my signature.
