Show and Tell! Figgy Pudding Table Runner

I was so excited that I not only had enough fabric from one Honey Bun to make all 5 of our families Christmas stockings (check them out a few posts down), but I had enough to make a table runner to match! I also had a few bits left of the tone on tone FQ's and really just added borders until I was out of fabric :)
I was loving the results......... until I started quilting it. I thought this might be a good opportunity to experiment with sketchy pebble quilting because it's a small project. Let me tell you, it takes a LONG time to pebble quilt! My circles were a little, ahem, "sketchier" than I wanted and I didn't like the white thread on the chocolate brown. I did, at one point, decide to take the stitching out, but that lasted about 10 minutes and I realized that was near impossible and I forged on.
We'll chalk this one up to live- and- learn and you know now that it's on the table, I'm warming up to it :)

Please take the time to peruse the other Show and Tell's hosted by Piece N' Quilt!
