Just before Easter June purchased the Greta Table Runner pattern from my Etsy shop. Off the pattern went from the UK to Kansas, and I wasn’t expecting to hear anything unless it didn’t arrive. Well, it must have been sent by the fastest carrier pigeon the postal service had, as it was only a few day’s later, when June contacted me regarding the bias binding.
I make my own 1/4″ (6mm) bias binding with a fusible tape backing. This is a great way of matching your bias to your project and the fusible tape holds it whilst it is stitched in place. I cut 5/8″ wide strips on the bias for the 1/4″ (6mm) bias tape maker.
June chose the lovely spotted green fabric to make her matching bias edging
And added a red border before layering and quilting round the fan blades.
June’s finished runner which is absolutely beautiful.
It has been such a pleasure, and rare treat to share in the story of one of my patterns, especially across the oceans. I would like to thank June for sharing the quilt journey with me and giving me permission to share it with you.
Happy Quilting and a Happy Easter
