As I made this table runner I started thinking the colours, and then the pebble quilting, reminded me of the beach at low tide. Maybe that is a bit of a fanciful thought, but this table runner is now named Low Tide in my mind. I might be channelling my memories of more tropical regions from my days of travelling what with the aqua blues though. Not quite the blue of the seas around England usually.
The runner measures up at 36"x14". It is made using aqua and teal scraps from my stash & Stof linen, bound with ombre fabric from Color Me Happy, and backed with the number fabric from Lucy's Crab Shack. I had to buy the thread locally so I had it right away, so unusually the thread used for quilting is Mettler in shades of aqua/teal. It sewed beautifully but I did find it gave off more lint than I have been used to using the Aurifil. I cleaned the bobbin area three times quilting this small project.
This table runner is going to be wrapped up and sent somewhere as a gift. I do hope the recipients like it as I have no idea what their home is like nor what their colour preferences are. This is just being sent on a wing and a prayer that they like these colours and modern quilting. Eeeeek!
