Welcome to Day 3!
These are beautiful batiks in warm colors and soft teals. I will admit, this is not my usual palette, but the unexpected color combinations made some stunning quilts and projects. I especially love the pops of pink and orange with the blue-greens.
When Tammy from Tamarinis asked me to join her blog hop, I knew I wanted to make a variation of my new Sawsall pattern for my project. As a table runner, it finishes 12″ x 60″, perfect for a long table. You can add as many (or few) blocks as you need for the size of your table.
Sawsall is a simple paper-piecing pattern and a lot of fun to make. Here is the original quilt from the cover of the pattern:
The pattern is available at your local quilt shop or you can grab the pdf version here: Sawsall PDF
I love making table runners and mini quilts. Not only are they almost-instant gratification, but they give me a chance to practice my machine quilting skills. I used my walking foot and Aurifil 50 wt. thread to stitch straight-ish lines down the length of the runner.
If you’re just beginning the hop, be sure to go to the first two posts and then continue daily through February 4th. Below the schedule you’ll see a link to enter for prizes.
