United Runner

Welcome to my day of the Be A Diamond Blog Hop, hosted by Carol of 
Just Let Me Quilt. May I introduce my United table runner!


United table runner by QuiltFabrication

This table runner received the name United, because lately, I feel we all need to set aside our own agendas and come together as one for the good of all. And of course, it helps United was done in patriotic colors, though any other color scheme would look just as fantastic!

Ready for some closeups? Here goes!

Just look at the awesome fill - I'm calling it Dragon Fruit because of the spikes. There's now a tutorial/video on how to quilt this - check out the Dragon Fruit Quilt Fill. And yes, it can be done on a domestic machine too.

Here's a closer view:

such yummy texture! Notice that the red/white/blue lines are stitched in the ditch - I wanted them to have a different dimension than the dense fill.

And one more pic, showing the patriotic backing fabric on this 15.5" x 41" runner - the perfect fit!

Oh - did I mention how easy the United runner is to put together? A couple strip sets plus a very easy, creative way to cut the background triangles make this a project that can be done in a day. I know I'll be making another with a fall theme - stay tuned for that later this summer.

I also want to give Carol a big thank you for hosting this hop, plus all the others I've participated in - they have been a ton of fun! I do hope there's more in the future. 

Happy Quilting!

  6. Hi Susan! Lovely, lovely table runner and I also love the name. United we stand, divided we fall - we need to learn from history. I love the fabrics in this, and also the quilting. You see dragon fruit and I see star spikes. Either way, I'll be back to read and watch your video. Happy Friday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
