New French Tablerunner

Fall is a great time for selling tablerunners, so I figured I'd better get busy and sew one.  I bought this fabric a while back because I love the French Provence look.  I've gotten most of my fabric of this sort from France (via my mother-in-law) but this US made.  The French fabric is more like home decor weight and this is your normal cotton.  But I love the print and the colors.

 The backside is a nice golden with dots, very frenchy looking also.

 I quilted it with a gold rayon thread and did the pebbling around the print on the borders,

 and did little feathers and swirls around the print in the center.  It is a challenge to do tiny feathers throughout.  It's all about control.  Do any of you longarm quilters hit bumps in the road when your machine decides to do it's own thing for an inch or so?  That always bothers me.

This is for sale in my Etsy shop.
