A new table runner is born

My friend Lisa gifted me a 2.5" precut pack of fabric in my favorite muddy colours.  I have always looked at these in the shops....but wondered what I would make with one!
I laid them out and rearranged them several times.  But in the end I found this simple design worked best.  I thought it deserved a fancy quilting pattern...but my quilting repertoire only holds a few designs.... 
so wavy spirals it was.  A nice quick fun finish and the stash was nicely reduced by a fat quarter for the backing, sashing and binding, not a huge volume, but every little bit helps.
...my mission to reduce my stash continues!
Happy quilting, Sue.


  1. Well done, another finish. I have a lovely table runner on my kitchen table that some kind lady made for me!

  2. Very sweet little finish. Those muddy colors are my favorites, too!

  3. I love your title as well as your new table runner. Sometimes working on a project can be like giving birth! Your quilting swirls were the perfect compliment to the squares in your design.

  4. It's lovely to use a gift all in one project. The swirls work really well.

  5. love it and the wavy spirals are perfect for it...

  6. You did a great job with the pre-cut squares. Does this table runner already have a home? Your stash busting is coming along. I had great plans for this weekend but soccer matches put paid to most of that.

  7. I like it a lot ....and your spirals are the perfect foil to the squares and rectangles. Another finish crossed off your list. You're on fire !
