Finish Number 3

This runner was machine quilted last year (I think in the fall) by Laurie, owner of Longarm Quilting by Laurie, in Elmira Heights, NY.  And then it sat while I auditioned binding.  I bought three or four pieces of varying shades of gray (no, not 50!).  I tried blues, several blacks.  No joy.  Until last week, when I finally found the perfect two-tone black.  I love it and am so happy to have it on the table in use.

Here's a closer look at the fabric.  It's a border stripe, and I used a pattern by Karen Montgomery.

I had told Laurie to quilt whatever she wanted on it--even just a simple meander.  I happened to be at her place when she quilted it and, partway through, she asked me what I thought.

Tessellating horse heads!  How majorly cool is that!  I just love it.  It's faintly visible from the front if you look closely.  I know it's there--like a secret message....

A slightly wider view of the back.

While I didn't join officially, Pomegranate and Chintz is having a challenge to finish 17 UFOs in 2017.  Check it out on my blog list at right.  The fourth finish is done and will be revealed shortly.

Thanks for visiting!
