FO Friday

 One completed Fall table runner!  72" long20" wide  Keepsake Quilting Medley
 I used my new sewing machine finished binding-hand sewing is now a thing of the past!  Very grateful I found a way that is neat and professional on the machine!
 And I made the other two blocks I needed for the basket quilt top-I am so much happier with this arrangement!  Worth the extra days of work!  This is an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day quilt so I used her method of applique which is better than needle turning each piece but is still a bit slower than piecing each block!  I am excited about sewing all the blocks together now!  Next week....
 I added tulips and
 canterbury bells to the quilt.
Bill has filled the trailer  and the truck and we are ready for a day of sales tomorrow!
