I'm getting tired of looking at this project so lets hope I stay standing till the finish. It just seemed so "chunky" with the large fall fruits/veggies, too chunky for the light embroidery thread so I pulled it all out. I've been collecting heavy thread for some time now. I had no idea what I would use it for but the color range was too pretty to pass up. I pulled it all out and used it on this project that is now an art quilt instead of a quilted table runner.
Don't worry about the wrinkles. This will not be a traditional bound edge. Today I hope to work on the quilting of the center. This is one of those projects that you decide the next step as you go along.
Now I have a pile of unused birds and fruits that'll have to end up in something. I started with a Halloween theme in mind but as I went along it looked more like a Thanksgiving theme. The crows will have to fly onto another pumpkin!
