I'm calling this quilt "Leafpeeping". Here's how it looks from the back:
Yesterday I had taken it to the slow stitching phase, and this morning I sat and stitched the whole binding all 222 inches of it. This quilt measures 88-1/2 x 22-1/5 inches.
Now it is fulfilling its destiny as a runner for my table.
This is my "Let's Book It" project for the month.
It's the "Leaves" project from this book by Kim Schaefer:
This book was purchased on our trip this past month while I was visiting a quilt shop in Wisconsin, so it didn't sit on the shelf too long before I actually made a project from it.
For today, I'm linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching.
Love Leafpeeping! The colors are wonderful & your FMQ is just the right compliment. Not to mention how terrific it looks on your table...!!
Turned out superb, Barb !~! Jolly well done. The backing fabric shines brightly and is a huge compliment to the front. Congrats on Let's Book It finish; it's a gem.
Your Leaves table runner really turned out nice!
That's one long runner!! It looks fantastic and makes a great Fall decor.
Congrats on the finish. It looks very snazzy there on your table.
Hi heard the fireworks go off. Love celebrating finishes and this one is gorgeous. Great free-motion quilting too!
That's a very striking runner. Beautiful colours and shapes. It must have been relaxing doing all that hand quilting.
Very, very nice and it is great that it will work for the entire fall season.
Smashing fabric on the back too : )
WOW a fantastic finish. That is a big table runner that looks great on your table. Like how you quilted it. Well done.
Leaf Peeping is beautiful. It is so graphic.

Very pretty! It always feels good to finish a project!
