Pinwheel Table Runner
Quilted table runners can be great for using up stash. This one is 12" by 40" finished size and it really doesn't use much fabric. It's made using Nancy Cabot's dancing pinwheels quilt block and I think it's really fresh and cheerful looking.
Each quilt block is made using four white 2.1/2" squares, sixteen 2.7/8" brown squares and eight 2.7/8" squares of both yellow and white. All the half square triangle units are made using brown with either yellow or white fabric. For the table runner I used three complete blocks.
After sewing the quilt blocks together I felt that it needed something to finish off the ends, so I added a row consisting of two brown 2.1/2" squares and four brown/yellow half square triangles at each end. That seemed to do the trick and round off the design. Then it just needed layering, quilting and binding.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I hope to see you again soon.
