The Red Robin Runner is finally finished and ready to go on my dining table, although it will probably be used more at Christmas! This was originally bought as a kit from Cross Patch (a successful shopping day at the Festival of Quilts) back in 2017. It's made with a combination of applique, hand embroidery and EPP (English Paper Piecing). This has been machine quilted very simply around the hexagon flowers. This was stitched very slowly so the quilting lines are clean, without any wobbles...
...and I've also machine quilted around the hand appliqued robins which perch on a hand embroidered vine at each end of the runner. The binding was cut on the bias so it goes smoothly around the curved ends with no wrinkles! This has been machined to the front, turned over and hand stitched to the back...
...this has been quite a labour of love, as I always say hexies aren't my favourites but I'm sure my technique is improving and I'm rather pleased with the finished runner.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
