Soooooo ready for Spring! I made this table runner using MSQCs Tulip Fields tulips pattern, then alternated/flipped the tulips and put sashing in between each one. The flanged binding is one I recently learned how to make from Natalie's MSQC Final Stitch video, Episode 8: Machine Binding. Fabric: KimberBell basics for Maywood Studio and Kona Cotton Muslin color. The wavy quilting I did with my walking-foot.
Decided to make a small version on my Tulip Time Table Runner. This one measures 26" x 10.5". I again used MSQC Tulip Fields Pattern only this time I used 2.5" squares instead 5" squares which I used in my larger table runner. Fabric: Grunge Basic Grey for Tulips, Shadow Play by Maywood Studio for leaves and binding, Robert Kaufman Kona Quilt Cotton in Natural for background and 8oz Cotton Natural color canvas painters tarp for backing.
These beautiful table runners were made for my sister-in-laws, in their favorite holiday colors. One loves christmas, so I used "Winters Grandeur", and the other loves halloween so I used "All Hallows Eve." I made an orange peel template to fit the finished squares and traced it on for my quilting lines. This adorable pattern is from the good folks at Jordans Fabrics, it is a free pattern and they have a youtube video about it. I ended up making a third one in traditional red, green, and gold fabrics for my parents! It is quick and fun!!
After watching Jenny's Make a Christmas Table Runner Using the Large Wedge Tool, I was inspired to make some as Christmas gifts for family in 2020. They were very well received and I enjoyed thinking about each family as I made them. I made seven total and when my husband asked which one was ours, I realized that I didn't make us one.
I purchased these fabric ends from a quilt shop that opened a few years ago. I had also purchased the "Mini Twister" and wanted to try it out...and this is the result (I did use some vanilla 5" charms for the border). Again, this was pieced in Nov 2019, but quilted and bound today (Apr 2021). I did put rod pockets on the back so that it could also be used as a wall hanging or something different to hang in the window of my front door. I'm starting to feel better about cleaning up the UFOs.
Saw this pattern and thought it would be a great Sew From Home project for our sewing group. It is to be a stash project; the biggest piece is the background. I used all my leftover chunks of WOW fabrics. They really do look great together. I have written up the pattern and as people finish a step on Saturday I will email them the next step. Really saw it in my Mind's Eye with a scalloped edge. My first! Very scary cutting into all that quilting, Pattern is available; see my profile for contact information.
Another pieced table runner created in Oct 2019 (which is the first month I started quilting). This was made for a friend who asked for a Thanksgiving table runner - of course, she never stated which Thanksgiving! Now that I've made the 1000+ mile move and I am finally getting things squared away, I have found several UFOs that need attention. This one only needed to be bound - and I finished that 23 March 2021. (At least it will be in time for this Thanksgiving...right?)
I had made a table runner using pieces of this jelly roll, but I didn't like it, so I used some more pieces of it and made this one in Nov 2019. This was while I still lived in Gainesville FL. So - I got caught up in the move and this project took a back seat. I finished quilting it Mar 30 2021 and did the binding today (Mar 31 2021). Now I have to mail it back to Gainesville as it is a gift!
A cheerful spring table runner for my mother. I used Missouri Star's 5 inch tumbler template to cut out the tumblers and the flower blocks came out of a book I have called Block Magic by Nancy Johnson-Srebro. I wanted to test out my tumbler block skills for an up coming baby quilt so I designed this pattern in my head. I think it would look adorable as a lap quilt with those flowers as a border going all the way around! I used two charm packs called "Butterfly Garden" for the tumblers and flowers.
