I am finally done quilting my Great Granny Squared table runner. I just love this little quilt, it's fun, bright and I am very happy with the scrappy look.
The pattern is from Lori Holt's (Bee In My Bonnet) book Great Granny Squared . I am very tempted to make a set of three quilts to hang side by side, the same way as is featured in one of the pictures.
I used a very simple swirl design to quilt it. I was aiming for texture instead of custom, detailed quilting. I was scared it would distract from the granny squares blocks if I had quilted tiny different designs. It's the first time I quilted a design at a larger scale and was pleased at how fast it got finished. Quilting larger designs was a bit tricky on my home sewing machine, as movement is easier (for me) when quilting small designs, but this is a small quilt, so there was very little drag or limitations.
I am however a bit undecided regarding the binding. While I was busy making this quilt, I was so sure that the blue with red strawberries would look great, but when I folded it over the edge of the quilt to see what it would look like, I am not entirely sure it works well. Now I have two choices, and I can't decide which looks best.... any thoughts?
