Triangle Table Runner Quilts | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is two triangle table runners!  I'm still featuring finishes from last year's 70 quilts.  There just aren't enough Fridays to show them all in one year without doubling some up.  It's a good thing I took the month of December off from quilting and won't have any fresh finishes for a few weeks!

The quilts are quilted with different designs; one is a flame design, the other is diagonal plaid bias ...

Echo and modern grid quilting: how these make Magic Mushrooms the star! from Quilt Social


In my last post I completed the straight line applique of the marvelous mushrooms and today I’ll finish the quilting with some simple but effective machine quilting.

After you complete the applique, press your table runner and make sure to check the back for any bunching or puckering. The beauty of using Banyan Batiks Daisy Chain fabrics is that they’re smooth and not prone to bunching or distorting, however, it’s always easier to address any problems you may have now than later!

If you’re happy with the applique stitching, you’re ready to add some modern ...

Stitching straight line applique for instant quilting satisfaction! from Quilt Social


Do you have all your applique pieces ready? Check out yesterday’s post if you missed it.

To begin quilting the Magic Mushroom table runner, sandwich your table runner by placing the backing fabric on a flat surface, right side down.

Next, add your batting and smooth gently and try not to pull too much on the batting or it will become distorted.

Finally add your pieced top and fused applique top, again smoothing gently in place.

Aren’t the Banyan Batiks beautiful? I particularly love the Sun colorway of the Daisy Chain collection. This collection is shipping out in ...

Fantastic fusible applique with HeatnBond Light from Quilt Social


Yesterday, I shared with you the material list and cutting information for the Magical Mushrooms table runner I’m working on this week. Did I say work? It’s all fun when using Banyan Batiks Daisy Chain fabric!!

I love fusible applique and I encourage everyone to try it! It’s quick and simple.

The advantage of using batiks for your fusible applique is that the thread content is high and allows for a crisp edge to your applique pieces.

Step 1 Trace mushroom templates onto the paper side of the fusible using a pencil.

You’ll need to cut ...

A runner took off from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

2019.  Good Lord .... where did 2018 go?  It went by ever so quickly.  The year started off at a fast pace and just kept on speeding along.  Like a runner.

Well, my niece that received this table runner is a runner and has a couple marathons under her belt.  So, what better person to receive this?  It was gifted to her for Xmas 2018.

Batiks.  It is not often that I work with batik fabrics and I actually went out shopping for this runner.  Now, there are batiks in my stash .... but not many.  I'm not really a fan ...

Making a reversible table runner using Banyan Batiks Rock City from Quilt Social


I have enjoyed creating designs with Rock City fabrics by Banyan Batiks this week that are coming to quilt stores this month. In yesterday’s post, I used some sterling colorway fat quarters to create checkerboard star quilt blocks. Today I’ll make the blocks into a reversible quilted table runner.

To make my runner I joined the blocks side by side and then decided to add a border.
You could also choose to make one more block and set them in pairs to make a 16 square table topper or a cushion front.

Falling for You Autumn Table Runner from Needle and Foot

A couple of months ago I read about some fun table runners over at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life.  Wendy had been pattern testing for a friend and actually made two versions of the runner.  I really liked the simplicity of the pattern and immediately hopped over to Craftsy to purchase the pattern. Designed by Vicki of Vicki’s Crafts & Quilting, it is a fun pattern and a quick project.  My kind of sewing!!

So, I had the pattern and I pulled some fun autumn fabrics from my (currently very messy and unorganized) stash for the runner. I cut ...

Make-A-List Monday - Taking Time To Breathe! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, after a super busy week two weeks ago, God decided to help me take a little break - a sore back can really slow you down!  But I did get a bunch of stuff done anyway (although not everything I wanted to) so let's see how last week's list went!

1.  Assemble the furniture for the guest room and get it all set up.
Done!  Unfortunately, this was the project that took out my back and made me slow down... But doesn't it look awesome?  I've added a mattress to the top bunk now ...

They are currently in my Etsy shop (where you can also see more photos of them), and I'll have them at the Yellow Springs Open Studios on Oct 20 & 21. After that any that are left will go to Village Artisans.

Upcycling a Vintage Caftan from Needle and Foot

This post is picture heavy and contains just a bit of sewing related info so if you aren’t in the mood, I totally understand!  As you might already know, my son and his fiancé were married on Saturday.  As the parents of the groom, we hosted a rehearsal dinner on the Friday night before the wedding. The couple wanted a Mexican dinner which we had catered by a local Mexican restaurant.  I don’t usually do this but it worked out well for us.  I had so much going on and not cooking the meal myself was so helpful ...

Flip and stitch to make a marvelous mug rug from Quilt Social


This week we started out with 8 fat quarters from the Banyan Batiks Tie One On collection and some coordinating Banyan Batiks Ketan fabrics.

After making your table runner and/or placemats, you probably still have some strips or squares left over. Let’s make a quick mug rug or table mat and use up all those leftovers!
