    Awhile back you had on your website a pillow. The pillow looked like honeycomb and you mentioned that you might share the pattern with us. Did you publish this and did I miss it. I would love to make this pillow. I even bought material that looked like honeycomb.
    Thank you
    Judy

      Oh yes!–I had forgotten about that pillow–I made that as part of the Sweet as Honey blog tour. I haven’t shared a pattern for that project and I thank you for reminding me. I know I won’t be able to put something together before Christmas but I’ll have to keep it in mind for after. =)

    You said you machine quilted the runner, would you please share what stitch you used and the size? I love how perfect it is. And I would love to see the back side of the machine stitched binding too! You do such beautiful work =)

    • Corey says:

      I have a Bernina and on my machine it’s stitch #4(which I believe is a running stitch)–it’s almost a zig zag stitch but it has a vertical stitch at the points instead of being a sharp point–if that makes sense. I leave the stitch as wide as it will go and set the length to between 2.5-3.5mm depending on how sharp of a wave I want.

      You would be impressed with the back of the runner!–I totally bragged to my husband about it(he wasn’t nearly as impressed). I’m so fussy about everything lining up nicely–and I don’t know how many times I’ve tried machine binding and ended up taking all the stitches out and redoing it by hand. I really think cutting the binding that 1/8″ smaller was the ticket. My seam on the back of the runner hits about 1/16″ from the edge of the binding–a very nice straight stitch.

  4. absolutely gorgeous, corey!

    Corey, is your background fabric a linen? What a beautiful project! I’ve been anticipating your post, and I love it. At my shop, we have made three Playful Petals quilts (the cover quilt) and one of them is from Bonnie’s Winged fabric on a linen background. That one is in the works, and when we’re finished I’ll send you a picture.

    • Corey says:

      Thank you so much Maxine!!–It is a linen–it’s Essex Yarn Dyed linen in Flax. I would love to see your finished Winged project!–please do share a picture when it is finished–it sounds like an amazing quilt! =)

    Cute table runner. I love making scrappy items.

  9. Mary says:

    That turned out so beautifully. Love those fabrics. We had a few “sickies” here for Thanksgiving too. ;-(

  10. Love the fabrics, love the table runner and can’t wait to see the quilt in the magazine. Yep, Holiday sickies here too! So far I’ve missed it entirely but feel like that’s too good to be true.

      Bonnie designs beautiful fabrics! I hope you manage to steer clear of the germs!–I’m trying to get rid of them myself but failing a bit… =p

    I love the table runner, especially the binding. It makes it pop for me. Beautiful work as usual Corey. Sorry your girls got the crud over the holidays but glad they are on the mend. Happy holidays.

    • Corey says:

      Thank you so much Betty!–and thanks for your take on the binding. For some reason, I had such a hard time picking just the right fabric to use. I don’t know how many options I tried before settling on this one!
