With four table runners to quilt recently and all with different backings I decided to baste the backings together and also add leaders to both the top and bottom.
Having fabric devoted for the task of leaders has enabled me to quilt for customers who’s backs are not quite large enough to accommodate loading with the red snappers that I use. I find it a quick and easy solution.
My customer chose the same Pantograph for all 4 runners, however the design would not have worked as an edge to edge over all of the runners. Instead each runner was quilted individually arranging the snowflakes to be somewhat centred through each one.
Sometimes small projects take as much if not more time than larger ones. In this case the extra time was well worth the effort.
