Pretty Piggy and Corn Cob table runner
Here piggy, piggy!
It’s dinner time down on the farm!
Mmmm….. I love me some bacon.
Last week these four little piggies were stitched up with a couple of cobs of corn. Polka dots in pink for the pigs and a couple of bright yellows for the corn. All set against a background of grey Widescreen crosshatch by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman.
After considering all the possibilities, I decided to put them into this layout, making a long table runner.
For the binding I used my remaining Katie Stripe in Midnight by Beauty Queen. It’s not black, but a very dark navy blue and blends in nicely with the grey background and the blue backing. For the backing I used a matching Widescreen in Pacific, left over from making this Giggles Up quilt.
The quilting was performed using my walking foot, in closely spaced organic wavy lines, using Superior Threads’ Omni #3023 in Light Gray thread in both the top and the bobbin. This thread blended perfectly with the background and was so subtle you can barely notice it against the pinks and yellows.
