I finished up another Piano Keys table runner and this time I added circles to the borders for a fun design. I pieced this April but didn’t get it quilted until yesterday. I used Full Bloom by Island Batik. The background fabric which looks like it is little rain drops is also a batik called Heavenly Hues Halo from Island Batik.
The nice thing about summer…..it is fun to take pictures outside on the deck.
I used Heat & Bond Lite on the circles and just caught them in my free-motion stitching instead of appliqueing them ahead of time. I also stitched a circle around each one so they would puff a little. My binding was made with leftover 2 1/2 inch strips of the batiks I used in the runner.
The table runner is a little big for this table but it looks pretty with the flowers.
Each time I make this table runner in different colors I think “This one is my favorite” then…..I make another one and say that again!
I had planned on posting this yesterday but…..the weather was beautiful and we spent the day boating on the Mississippi river with friends who were camping close by. We went out on the water abut 10:30 am with jackets and by noon had them off as it was warm. Thankfully the humidity was low.
