Finished

Over the last few days, I've been working on a table runner for my mom's friend. The pattern is "Hollywood Boulevard" by Atkinson Designs, made mostly of French General by Moda. I've used a few of Atkinson's patterns over the years, and find them meticulous and straight-forward.
This runner just seemed to call for some straight-line quilting and a solid coordinating binding to finish.
Hopefully, I'll be able to deliver this project in a few days.

Meanwhile, I anticipate working on several smallish projects this week, more than one under a tight deadline. I've been enjoying your many comments on Saturday's Quilting Modern post, hearing about techniques and projects that are challenging you. If you haven't already, do check out the post and enter the giveaway for a copy of Katie Pedersen and Jacquie Gering's new book, Quilting modern: techniques and projects for improvisational quilts. I've had a chance to look through it closer, and it really is terrific! Have a great day - I'll be back tonight to chose a random winner!
