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.

Spring is on its way and your pretty tablerunner definitely says spring.
