Custom quilting for the modern quilter by Christine Perrigo

This project was an experiment to test quilting of a small quilt that was already finished and bound. This table runner was something that my mother in law had put together, however she had never put a stitch of quilting in it.


This style of table runner is not something that would fit in any of the homes of the immediate family members, so it was decided that this would be donated to my sister in law’s preschool for an auction. I wanted to see if I could quilt it quickly on the long arm by just pinning it to the leaders. Although I was not able to quilt it completely to the edges, I believe that the quilting that I was able to accomplish did help to increase the value.


This method only took me about an hour and came away with good enough results that I am most likely going to try it again on a few more of the pile of table runners that I have from my mother in law.
