I finished my table runner that I’ve been working on last year.The reason I took so long to finish it was , I could not decide between machine stitching the binding and hand sewing.Finally I settled on hand sewing and decided to finish it off. It did not take more than half an hour to finish it. And to think I waited soooo long to just get done with it! wip 2011

It was helpful that the quilting instructions were given in the pattern. I stitched in the ditch around the pinwheels. And did stippling around the floral border.

The finishing instructions were not given for the runner.So I had to figure that out myself.  The instructions here at Idaho Quilter were helpful .While I am happy with the border , the binding I’ m not happy about.I should have done a 21/2” strip instead of the  2” strip I did.

I just wanted to share this video I found on You Tube  that was very helpful in burying those pesky knots.
