They say that it is "Springtime in the Rockies"; but as a snow-loving person, I'm still hoping for a good April snowstorm.  Never the less, when I was at a Colorado Springs quilt store a couple of weeks ago; I picked up several fat quarters of springy, happy and bright fabrics from Riley Blake and a pre-cut 5" stack of Bonnie and Camille fabrics. They seemed perfect for a new table runner that I could work on practicing my machine quilting.

 Will I ever be satisfied with my machine quilting?  I'm beginning to wonder, but I'll keep practicing.
I chose the red-checked fabric for my binding --- it's a little "out there", but it is growing on me! 
No pattern available --- I did my usual thing, and made it up as I went.
I'm working on another runner in a different design to give away as I had plenty of fabric left over.  Maybe, I can convince myself that Spring is really here.

I feel the same way - surely there's a spring snow shower coming soon... :) Your table runner is very pretty and springy, and I like that binding! Thanks for sharing it on MCM.

Hi, it's snowing here today - but it won't stay, so maybe spring will come...eventually! Your runner is colourful and full of spring hope. Keep practicing with your machine quilting. It's well worth the effort.
