    A Spring table runner I made today for a birthday pressie for my sis in law


    Had to make her something on short notice but thanks to Jenny I knew how.
    I started in the middle with some strips I had cut and did the quilt as you go:
    I'm a right one trick pony but I like the way they look!

    The "handstitching" is a decorative seam on my brand new Singer Confidence 7470:
    invisible thread and high tension when it comes to the top thread and
    a sturdy cotton quilting thread in the bobbin. Love the way that came out!

      Ooooh - pretty! Loving the green and can't wait until my grass looks like that.
      I'm sure she'll love it!

                  I like this a lot. The only time I've ever tried using two different types of thread I had lots of tension issues and I read in my manual to use only the same type of thread in the bobbin as the top. How did you adjust to mange this? I really am interested in this technique.

                    Thank you all so very much for your very kind comments!

                    Lin, the manual for this particular seam calls for high tension in the top thread and that was what I did.

                    I always test things on scrap with batting as the real work will have and I have used different threads without trouble so far. *Knocks self on head*
