Salt Air & Waves, an update in pictures

binding a table runner

This is where I'm at, handstitching the binding on what will be a table runner.

practice FMQ swirls

I made a practice sandwhich before I FMQed the actual project {I usually skip that}

Salt Air FMQed with swirls

the swirly quilting design comes from Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters {love that book!}

basting my Salt Air table runner

I pieced together batting scraps for both the table runner & the practice sandwhich

hand sewing the binding down...

I do love handstitching the binding! {and Wonder clips truely are wonderful!}

PS - I tried to do a wordless post, but I guess i just talk too much :)  i'll share more about this when it is done.  meanwhile, there will be some linking going on...

I just love the salt air fabrics. I got a charm pack of it a few months ago, because I fell in love with the whale tails :) Make sure to post it when you're all done!
