Spicy Spiral Table Runner


This is actually my own finished project for a change!  I made this table runner for my local guild challenge.  Every year we are given three fat quarters and asked to make a small project with them.  The rules are very flexible.  There are no limits as to how many additional fabrics you can add, or the finished size.  These were the fabrics.

I used the Spicy Spiral table runner pattern and a 10 Degree Wedge tool.  After I got my head around the instructions, it went together really fast.  I decided to try some feathers for the quilting, and a few swirls to fill in the center.

The pattern does not call for traditional binding, but I knew I would prefer it that way.  The biggest problem was deciding what color binding to use.  I didn't like the look of the binding blending on one side and contrasting on the other, so I decided to use two colors.  It was a little finicky to get the seam to line up exactly where I wanted it, but I am very happy with the result.

  4. Stunning! I love your colour choices. I was searching 'the Google' for advice on how to bind this and I came across your project. Lovely!
