Fast and Flurrious
This was a Sew Sampler project a few months ago. I completed it just before Thanksgiving -just in time to put it out on my server in my dinging room. The fabric collection is Cider by Basic Grey. I made the runner longer to accommodate the size of my server. I did the fremotion quilting on my sewing machine.
Since I went through my quilt tops and took photos of them I had wanted to complete more of my quilts. Part of the reasons why is because I have room to hang them on the walls in my house. Part of the reason is I feel so guilty having so many tops not quilted. This quilt is among one of my oldest quilt tops. Around 18 (give or take a few years) years ago I was part of an old Delphi Forum, BEFORE Facebook! We had a block exchange of Maple leaves. I received quite a few blocks and they sat for around 9 years. I put it into…
just in time for Halloween. This is based on the Bats and Boos quilt along from Fat Quarter Shop. I added several borders to the top. I particularly like the pinwheel border. What surprised me the most about making the quilt was I did large scale free motion stippleing on it. It was like riding a bike with my new sewing machine.

When The Fat Quarter Shop released this free video tutorial a few months ago, I knew I wanted to make it. I was not sure from which fabric line, but I loved how it looked. Then Chill by Zen Chic came out. I loved the rich purples. I debated whether I should make two that the strips were matching or two where they were mixed up. In the end. My OCD won out, and I matched the strips. This was such easy project and I look forward to making more in different fabrics.
This sweet little runner was fast and easy to make. I love how it looks on my server. Cozy Christmas Duet Fig Tree Quilts Christmas Figs II by Joanna Figueroa December 9, 2020 14″ x 65″
