Random Roundup #7

Spring Table Runner

I took a day off from work a few weeks back and did some sewing but haven’t had the chance to share what I made. I was in between big projects and didn’t know what I wanted to work on. I was trolling through my charm packs and decided that I needed a Spring table runner. I pulled a Charm pack of Giggles, by Me and My Sister Designs, out of my stash. The colors just scream ‘Spring’ at me.

I had a pattern that I had recently downloaded that I was going to use for a baby quilt. But, if I cut the number of rows down then it might make a pretty cute table runner. The pattern is called ‘Daisy Baby’ and can be found for free on the PiperGirls blog.
I chose my favorites of the teal, purple, and blue ranges. I also pulled 2 different text prints for the background. The directions are very simple to follow and I had my 2 rows done rather quickly.

I only used 10 of the charm squares for the runner so I have the rest of that set left for another project (plus an additional charm pack remaining in my stash). I like the split cross blocks placed on the diagonal. I’m a fan of Charm packs so I’m always looking for awesome ways to use them that are a bit different than your basic nine-patch.

I bound it in a bright teal and then added a small snippet of a grey daisy print to add interest to the binding. It looks fabulous on my coffee table.

Mini Medallion Quiltalong – final border

I finally got around to adding the final border for the Mini Medallion quilt from late last year.

I like how it turned out but I keep thinking that I want to keep going and add another border or two. I keep leaning toward a border of the x-plus block. I’ll need to do some quilt math to see if that would work out or not. Other suggestions are very welcome!

Beehive Quilt bee blocks
I’m involved in an online quilt bee this year and my group was one of the last groups formed so our first block was for February. It’s fun to see the different combinations of the same block designs. Our February Queen Bee chose the Tic Tac toe block with low volume for the X and bright and scrappy for the rest. Here’s the block I’m contributing to her quilt:

She has also requested a smaller signature block in a style of our own choosing. I made an Improv block after I learned how to successfully print on fabric! I totally felt like rock star when that worked out.

Printing on fabric is going to be such a useful tool and I can’t wIt to continue to use it.
