I love tablerunners and small quilts too. I have lots of fall and Christmas- I need to make some for spring and summer. I like to use my little seasonal quilts on my doors. I just love using them in many spaces.

That butterscotch half square triangle runner is very striking. It’s so funny how the simple traditional designs come out so awesome. Guess you can tell I’m not a modern quilt lover. I like simple quilting too! Enjoy your new projects!

These are cute! I love the nine-patch. How big are the squares? You have me thinking!


'Butterscotch' is the perfect name for that HST runner! Good thought, fellow commenter, Susan! Meanwhile, you're having a heat wave & over here in Wyoming we had a dusting of SNOW on a nearby mountain yesterday afternoon! Go figure! Have a good weekend!

Love your little quilts! I want to start making them. I figure I can use a new fabric line without breaking the bank.

I mostly make table runners, toppers and wall quilts. Mainly I still work full-time so I get a finish fairly quick. Plus they don't cost much to make. I also love to change all my quilts on almost a monthly basis. These are quick satisfaction!!

Lovely arrangement on your runner. I need to heed your thoughts about smaller quilts. I have stacks of big quilts I never tire of. I just haven't done every one on my mental list just yet.

As you know, I've been making small and tiny quilts for several years and find them a delight. They make good gifts, too, as everyone has table tops and walls. I sew hanging triangles on the backs so they can be used either way. It's fun to m use seasonal and holiday fabrics, too.

A book I love is "101 Fabulous Small Quilts" from Martingale, 2013.

They all look terrific Nicole. Look so like fall. I am ready for some fall weather. So hot! Have a good weekend.

They're lovely!


I've hit your stage--plenty of large quilts, and a slightly lower budget for quilting. Occasionally I make a big one if it really strikes me, but normally I make lap-sized quilts and smaller. Everyone can use a quilt to cozy up and read or watch TV in, and it doesn't have to be enormous. Plus I quilt my own quilts on my bernina, and those big ones get harder on my shoulders the older I get.

I find that I, too, am enjoying making smaller quilts - table runners, table toppers, lap-size quilts, etc. And I, too, don't have the money available to me since I retired so I am trying to use up more and more of my stash. Some I've had for quite a while, but I still really love most of it. Once in a while I come across some fabric that has me trying to remember why I would purchase that color or pattern..


Love how your toppers turned out! They are going to be fabulous for Fall.
