This week I've been quilting away on my Figgy Pudding runner. I tried a ribbon candy swirl on the inside white boxes. It's not too bad if you don't look at where I turned the corners (which you instantly did).
I always like to make a sample to practice my design, adjust my thread tension, and choose a thread color before quilting any project. The fancy term is a Maquette but around here they're referred to as yet another mug rug;-) In this case I made a sparkle star block and then tried a loopy stipple. I love the way it looks like Christmas lights. Once I felt like I had it under control I used this to quilt the setting triangles and finally finished quilting my table runner.
See what else is in the works at this week's W.i.P. Wednesday:-)
