    Default What I've been up to, part 3 (pic heavy)

    When I brought the bowl cozies to the shop, the buyer said she wanted table runners, so I brought these to her today:

    These were from a panel I sliced up and some fabric from my stash. Sashed and backed with some chambray someone gave me a while back:

    Ten-minute runner that seriously took me an hour and a half. Decided to add the lace after it was done.
    Fabric was supposed to be a sun dress for DD when she went to college FOUR YEARS AGO. Oy. Maybe next time I'll be faster...

    Most of this fabric came from a tag sale, and was already cut into 2.5" strips. I cut them to 13" lengths and then folded them in half lengthwise. Then I laid them on my cutting board and put my ruler on top such that it was right at the cut edge of the fabric at one end, and 3/4 of an inch away from the fold at the other end. Wedges came out symmetrical and were 1.5" at the narrow end and 2.5 at the wide end. I spray-basted the batting to the backing fabric, marked a chalk line all the way down one long side, and just quilted as I went along. Easy and quick, because by the time you finish piecing, it's alrealy quilted, too:

    Saw something similar to this on Pinterest; works great with any fabric that has a large-scale or interesting print that you don't want to cut into small pieces. Center panel is 6" finished; yellow border is 1.5" finished; border is 3" finished. Very quick and simple, but effective:

    Not gonna' lie: this is my favorite. Love me some batiks! So happy about the "stained-glass" side, which turned out to be WAY easier than I thought it would. Saw a great tutorial on this technique: https://ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/2014...quilt-pattern/
