Table runners.......

I decided it was time to get the 3 batik table runners quilted.  I did this one with a 50 wt. variegated cotton thread.
The thread went from light turquoise to medium turquoise so it barely looks variegated here.
I haven't decided on a binding on this one yet but I'm leaning toward a green.
On this one I used a 12 wt. variegated thread that had several colors in it and I like it better than the first table runner.

They all look great. I just love the quilting on the last picture. I can see that it is variegated.

I love the varigated threads and the straight line stitching.

The bright variegated thread is nice. I do like turquoise so the first one looks good to me too.

You are a designer from fabric to thread and I agree thread always adds to piece. And you know how to use it ! I wouldn't be concerned about the light to medium turquoise thread it looks so pretty on my screen.

I like the simple quilting with the variegated thread. It does adds to the over all quilt

Looks great! What stitch length did you set? Does the weight of the thread mean a change in the stitch length?

Beautiful table runners. Love the variegated threads use for the straight line quilting.

I love the variegated thread. Tell me about your dye cutter.

Very pretty! I see why you like the second one better. I've become very fond of the variegate threads myself.
