total new to this -- I am following this tutorial

Dresser Runner Quilt?

I am finished with step 13 -- BUT it just feesl like there should be something else done to top -- maybe stitch in the ditch along all those seams or help!! :-)

Before I put the beginning of the outer binding thingy on and make the sandwich -- Maybe I am overthinking this?



Thanks for any suggestions - No embrodiery machines here. Just Pffaft hobby, Viking, 2 elderly green Elna's with some cams and a 60's montgomery wards. The Pffat may have some semi-nice stictches

------
I have a great enthusium for sewing, but lack talent to be great.

I bookmarked this as I was hunting a runner pattern to try. I really love how this looks and it seems to have really good directions. I am going to machine quilt mine if I can get to that point-probably a stitch in the ditch. I can't do the button thing as my cat has discovered the antique washstand I made one for in the spring and would tear it up swatting the buttons all the time. She never slept there until I made a spring runner. On second thought maybe I should put lots of buttons so she'll nest some other place. I guess those large squares would be a nice place for a quilt shape now that you mention it. Thanks for posting this. I plan to try to make it when I finish my current project.

My cats don't care how many buttons, pins I have to cover my wip with thick plastic! How fun to put a ton of buttons on and see if she would still sleep there?

Ok I will do a stitch in the ditch on the red strips

Here is where I'm at now -- got to cut the little bits off and iron but feeling it needs something more?

Don't have a quilt shape (or a quilting machine) does that mean maybe put rows of one of my special stitches from the Pffaft on the large plain squares?

Thanks - so far it was quick and easy but I'm only 1/3 the way done

Some use a pattern on solvy ( an embroidery stabilizer) that dissolves in water to sew through and make a design that they have traced or drawn. Maybe one of the real quilters will weigh in here. I used to hand quilt and have done a few baby quilts. I was thinking of putting a machine embroidery quilting design that is an outline type shape. The pfaffs do have pretty stitches so that could work out well. I also tied a couple of baby quilts with embroidery floss using a curved needle. I first saw that on an antique quilt and thought it looked nice. My kitty won't care how I quilt mine as long as she gets to homestead it. It will definitely be used and washed a lot so I won't spend much time on the quilting part on the runners. I am wanting to learn to free motion quilt but need more practice before ruining the cat's runner. Lol!
