Spring Sprouts

1-IMG_0997

I made this tablerunner for the Pantone 2013 Challenge.  The color this year is emerald.  Last year it was tangerine.

It’s quilted about 1 inch apart with a long (3.2) stitch in cream thread.

The background fabric is Essex Linen in ivory.

The backing fabric is canning jars and is reversible.  I sent this tablerunner to my sister who loves to can almost as much as me!

I machine attached the binding as usual.  I don’t know if I’ll ever hand stitch a binding ever again.

Hurry up, spring!

Traceyjay Quilts shared this diagram on Flickr that I used to make this tablerunner.
