2016 APQ UFO Challenge List

Number Eight

Even before Judy pulled #9 in this month's UFO challenge, I knew I just wanted to get #8 finished. I had pieced it earlier this year and wanted to quilt it. At the very end of last month, I got it prepped for quilting and when Judy pulled #9 on the 1st, I knew I could probably get them both done this month, so I went ahead and quilted it. This is why I love table runners - less than an hour from loading it to unloading it! I quilted swirls because I wanted something with a little more oomph than loops or stippling. 






I had already made the binding, and found time today to attach it by machine to the front and the back. Now it is ready to adorn my table the next time we have a birthday to celebrate! 


And, isn't this backing fabric perfect? I had it in my stash and couldn't think of a better use for it!
