I was able to finish up the whole-cloth runner for the buffet in the dining room and am pleased with it.
I like glass stuff and have a small collection plus a lovely set of candlewick glassware that was a wedding present to my maternal grandparents. The larger pieces don't fit in any cabinets that I have so I display it on the dining room buffet and table.
I had been using a quilted place mat for the buffet but it was too small to accommodate the candlesticks... and, without anything on the buffet, the glass seems to disappear.
The quilting took more than two bobbins of thread but I do like how it turned out.
It was funny but it was much easier to see spaces I had missed from the back rather than from the front with the printed fabric.
One "incentive" to get this project done was that I did not remove the Christmas decorations from the buffet until I had the runner ready. So one of today's project is to get this stuff put away!
A simple project but one that allowed me to get in there and practice FMQ-ing... both moving the fabric and controlling motor speed with the foot pedal.
