Rows upon rows of glorious stitching :)

I think I may have found my quilting groove :)

From the moment I put this baby under my walking foot, I was enjoying it. Oh what a feeling! I just couldn't stop....row upon row of quilting appeared as if by magic. No watching of the clock this counting down how much to go before I could be finished. Oh no...I actually enjoyed this!

This, by the way, is a tablerunner which Linda, Tracey and I got together to make last Sunday night. It was one of our Sweetwater Label Crew projects (can't recall which month?).

I cheated a bit. You may recall our last get-together, in which nothing-but-nothing would go right? Well, I decided to avoid that and buy a kit...and turn up prepared...much to the girls' disgust!

I decided to do my own thing with the quilting, and went with echo-quilting some triangles after my binding went on. LOVE how they turned out!

 I actually had to stop myself from going right into the centre with the quilted triangles...very addictive once you get started!

 The banner fabric is my favourite from Sweetwaters' Hometown perfectly cute, especially covered in rows and rows of quilted goodness :)

 Of course, no Sweetwater project would be complete without a personalised label to finish it off!

 I added some red buttons to the centre and TA DAH! All finished! Now...what's next on the to-do list?
