Fern runner

I've finally finished sewing back the binding on my second fern runner and laid it out on my coffee table for photographing.
I can't decide if I like this one or the first one I did.
It's funny how we go through phases with our quilting and artwork isn't it? I seem to be on a bit of a runner craze right now. It's quite satisfying to make a piece of art that can be used and enjoyed.
I've got my latest, the purple cosmos one sandwiched and on my machine, ready for quilting. This morning, I made muffins, did a wash and did my 'time' on my sit on bike. It's a bit damp out here today although warm. Now, I'm free for a bit to meander on the runner and perhaps do a bit of reading form my latest book which I'm quite enjoying, Anna From away by D R MacDonald. I love to read good books that set in familiar places. (It's set in Cape Breton where I once taught for several months.)
Got to go now and get a bit done before my daughter arrives home from her PEI trip where she secured an apartment for herself for the next year while she takes her Bachelor of Education at the University of PEI. We'll be moving her in a couple of weeks.
I'm linking to the Needle and Thread Network..

not only like your runner, but love the quaint little coffee table (my living room is painted that kind of green!)

My husband loves to have my small quilt tops or table runners around the house! Love your piece(s)!!

I really enjoy your projects. I share your experience of doing things in cycles. I think we're exploring until we don't have anymore questions. Then it's onto something else.

Your runner is very spring-like! very nice colors and LOVE that little table too! How's your snow melt going?? Are you ready for tomorrow's weather? I'll be glad when the good weather is here to stay!
