QUILTING: Pinwheel Table Runner

Remember the table runner I mentioned in my previous post? It’s a simple pinwheel block provided in the course material within The Quilters Path Craftsy class by Christa Watson.








I made the blocks and turned them into a table runner so that I could practice the loopy flower quilting that Christa taught in the class. Well, it’s now bound and finished and sitting prettily on my coffee table. It feels very spring-like and I’m all ready for the start of spring this year. Admittedly it was a mild winter and we rarely turned on the heating in the house, but I’m a sucker for the prettiness of spring.



Can you see that row of hot pink hand stitching along the binding? I’ve added a picture just below. I couldn’t resist adding that extra hand sewn touch. A needle, a ball of perle 8 cotton and something good to watch on the telly is pretty much my idea of a good night in.




If I’d thought of it earlier, I would probably have added some sort of ribbon or lace, but for now I’m quite content with my little pink stitches.
