OMG November is finished!

My November goal was to quilt the orange table runner I made in September for the Rainbow Scrap / Table Scraps Challenge. The orange squares have been made not only from scraps, but from crumbs!

Here it is, not only quilted, but bound too!

Crumby Orange Table Runner

I quilted the main part and the outside border with randomly spaced parallel straight lines, mostly in navy but also a few orange for some variation. The navy thread is exactly the same shade as the navy fabric; is that difficult to see when quilting! The shark's teeth (arrows) which I cut freehand I quilted free motion. As someone in an earlier post suggested they looked like flames, I stitched a flame-like motif on them.

A couple more photos because I took so many!

What a fun project! Crumbs add so much visual interest and the quilting just finishes it all up beautifully.
