I've been working on a couple of springy table runners this past week. I shared Tootsie Pops with you, which is super cute, but I wanted another runner that showed off more of that beautiful Lilac Hill fabric I had been hoarding.
An old Schnibbles pattern called State Fair came to mind, and I decided that would be a good choice for what I had in mind. I tweaked the pattern to make 21 blocks set in a rectangular format, 21 x 42", a good size for my oval dining table. The blocks are super fun to make--a great method of making larger odd sized blocks that are trimmed down to a perfect 5 1/2 inch size. And when you have a gorgeous bundle of fabrics, it is a joy to pick and choose which fabrics you want in each block.
I still have to sew on the binding, but later in the week I will take a picture of the finished results on my dining table. Just in time for Easter, right?
And I have this much fabric left. Little Bear says I should just go ahead and make a quilt with it.
