ALYOF May Goal Completed!

29 May

My goal was to finish my Rainbow Road Table Runner:

And here she is!

I actually finished the Saturday evening before Mother’s Day, so while I wasn’t able to get it mailed to my MIL in time, we did a video chat with her on Sunday and got to show it to her. Which is good because, um, it still hasn’t been shipped out yet. Need to get to the Post Office!

I quilted her with organic wavy lines (using my walking foot) and did a machine-attached binding with Kona black, which I thought would set off all the colors nicely.

On my table – I will admit I was just a bit tempted to keep her!

Another closeup.

I’m super thrilled with how this turned out. Again, it’s the Rainbow Road table runner pattern which is only available as part of Rachel’s (Stitched in Color) Curves class. Fabrics are nearly all various Kona Cotton solids – I used both prewashed and non-prewashed fabrics and didn’t have any issues with either shrinkage or colors running.

In case you were wondering, I finished my mom’s Mother’s Day socks as well! We had dinner at her house on Mother’s Day so I was able to give them to her on time. In previous years I haven’t been as well organized so it felt good to get both of these gifts done! I’m lucky to have two wonderful moms in my life.
