A Table Runner for Marianne from Dizzy Quilts

My baby girl is moving out and getting her own apartment this coming May. I've promised her a quilt for her bed but until that's done, I decided to whip up a quick table runner. 


I was going to make placemats at first and I had decided on this free pattern by Alissa Haight Carleton. But when I confirmed the colours with Marianne, she said she would rather have a table runner. Instead of going to look for a different pattern, I decided to make the placemats and sew them all together into a table runner.


I used ...

Celtic Shamrocks from Seaside Stitches

 I made a table runner and I'm blogging about it within 24 hours!

  After a successful Celtic applique workshop with Scarlett Rose in January with Ninigret Quilters, I went all in on Celtic! There's a big, beautiful Valentine wall hanging that is on hiatus. I wanted to practice quilting on something less important, so I started this shamrock piece.
 
I drafted this design in EQ8 by tracing some stock Celtic drawings I found online. The block finishes at 7.5", which was pretty small for those inside loops, even with 1/4" bias. Playing with plaid was fun ...

Project QUILTING 12.3: Virtual Vacation from Goer

Ya know how I said I was going to start early in the week for this week's challenge? Nope. Here's my Saturday quilt, finished in the wee early hours of Sunday morning.

I taught the first half of my All About Angles workshop on Tuesday. I can't teach a workshop without being inspired by my students to create another version on one of my techniques. I don't always have time to carry that out, but this week's Project QUILTING challenge was the perfect opportunity. This week's theme is Virtual Vacation. We were asked to ...

challenge and a finish from Making A Lather

I decided to participate in 2021 table scraps trt challenge.  I have a few table runner/ toppers that I have bought over the years, that I would like to make, but, they aren't part of any goal setting that I have been doing. It isn't part of any finishing goals ( they aren't started) or before I die goals ( I have time). They are just hanging around saying pick me, pick me. The challenge will give me a chance to think about, and, hopefully, finish a few projects.

This month, I picked an easy project that was already ...

Hearts and Gizzards Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Hearts and Gizzards Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Never judge a quilt by its name—even if that name is Swamp Angel, Corn and Beans, or Oklahoma Boomer.

Because if wack-a-doo names scare you off, you will miss gems like this week’s new quilt: Hearts and Gizzards. (Yep, Hearts…and Gizzards.)

The Hearts and Gizzards Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Hearts and Gizzards is a gorgeous, old-fashioned layer cake pattern composed of pretty hearts that form flowers (or gizzards?). It’s dainty. It’s feminine. And its name is absolutely weird!

horseplay from Charm About You


Today I'm sharing another project that ignited my creativity, reinforced my style and encouraged me to push my skills. I am so happy with this finished table runner, which now sits pride of place on top of my fabric cupboard (no longer covered in mess!).

I created this runner in the summer as part of the #justjudecollaborates series of makes organised by Judith Hollies. It's actually made using the Horseplay cushion pattern by talented designer Kerry Foster of PennyDog Patchwork.

The fabric pull took a long time. I really liked the fabrics Kerry used in her original version ...

Triple Play! Little Houses from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

I’ll always remember 2020 as the year we stayed home. We wore stretchy pants. We watched movies. We sewed and sewed and sewed (and sewed). And, we baked A LOT of banana bread. 

Jenny’s Design

Some days were boring; some were lonely. But through it all, I’ve felt grateful for the peace and safety of these four old walls. Dorothy was right, there’s no place like home.

Christmas Runner in Red from From My Carolina Home

When I cut up the Christmas panel, I made three sections. The large wreath on the left was finished into a wall hanging, and you can see that process HERE. The smaller sections with the pine cones and greenery were finished into table runners. Each one was treated differently, so today, I’ll show the first runner.

Once again, I cut the sections to even numbers plus 1/2-inch. Both of the runners began at 22-1/2 inches long and 6-1/2 inches wide.

I cut the first border for it at 1-1/2 inches wide, and sewed it on ...

A Red Table Runner for Max from Dizzy Quilts

My son Max moved into a new apartment this last July. Now that his apartment is decorated, furnished and he has a good idea of what his needs are, he asked me to make him a new table runner for his dining area. He didn't have requests in terms of design, but asked for red and white and provided very specific measurements.

I scrolled through Pinterest for some ideas and found a pattern which I thought would be perfect: the Log Cottage runner pattern by Fresh Dew Drops. I already had Kona White and the perfect fat quarter for ...

Shattered Star Table Runner from Dizzy Quilts

Early in September, Shannon Fraser of Shannon Fraser Designs put out a call for testers for the new pattern she'd be releasing on October 1: Shattered Star. I haven't been able to test any patterns lately because of work - the deadlines are typically pretty tight so I always had to say no.

However, when Shannon reached out and I saw the design, I just had to do it! I knew it would be very difficult for me to commit to testing a full size quilt, but she had so many options for her new pattern, I figured I ...

Hello Fall! A Blog Hop from Stitchin at Home


 Today is my turn in the 'Hello Fall Blog Hop'. Thanks to, Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks, for this great idea. 

I was in Northern Ontario this past weekend at my son's, as you can see in the photo below the leaves are just starting to change. I love fall with its beautiful colours and with the weather changing to cooler temps it's time to start thinking of curling up under a quilt and reading a book or even binge watching Netflix.

I had a project in mind with a bit of a Canadian ...

Sugar and Spice Halloween Table Runner from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Have you noticed wool is on bolts in quilt shops? I am used to seeing small pieces of it that cost almost as much as a yard of fabric, but not whole bolts of wool. How awesome is that?! Wool is trending. It must be because plaids and flannel have been showing up in apparel for a few years now. I don’t use wool all that much, but it definitely has its place in my creative bubble. I love using it for pin cushions and I used it in this Sugar and Spice Halloween Table Runner.

Small distractions from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well today. Still hot and rainy here, so, you know, looking to start growing mushrooms on my north side any time now. Unbelievably, this weekend is our one-year anniversary in Baltimore. For some reason, this feels really momentous. Maybe it's the heat. Or the quarantine. Who could have known what the last year would bring? 

This week I needed some distractions from everything that's going on, but I just didn't have the mental energy to work on anything important. Do you ever feel that way? You want to sew ...

Sewing, Gaming and Quarantining Continue from The Modern Diary

 I needed some cheery sewing so I finally made a Garden Party Table Runner.  I decided to make it to match my quilt (from the Quiltville Cruise) with the green running throughout.  These blocks are really fun to make and come together quickly.
 It is now all layered with batting and backing and ready for me to quilt. Here are Sunshine and Bug who cannot resist getting into the photos.
Someone on Quiltville showed a layout of the Easy Breezy leaders and enders with friendship stars.   I had just been digging in my leftover bin and realized I had a ...

My Home State from From the Strawberry Patch...

I loaded this panel onto Snowbird last week to do some bead board, straight-line, quilting. I decided to use the panel as is, it measures 19" X 44" and is perfect, without being bordered, as a table runner for our kitchen table. I had it quilted up in no time. One of the very best tips that I've ever heard is one that I learned from quiltdivajulie. She makes her bindings before she's quilted
