I finished up the binding on my table runners. This one will be for me as I like small runners. The size is 12 x 24 inches. I just used a red print that I had in my stash for years.

This table runner is 12 x 36 and will probably be a gift.

I did aย tutorial on the blocks that I made using Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I used 1 charm pack plus some white muslin for all 6 blocks. If you haven’t seen it be sure and take a peek.

6 blocks would make a perfect size for a baby quilt….of course the flowers would have to go the other direction ๐Ÿ™‚ I would probably add a border to make it a little wider too.

This particular block is the one I talked about in my tutorial – I didn’t pay attention to the fabrics I was picking. I prefer the corner snowball blocks to have a better contrast.

Would you believe I still have one more charm pack of Ruby……I may just make a baby quilt from it but not for a bit. I am feeling the need to just piece, piece, piece!

I have seen several paper piecing blocks lately that I just love and I really need to sit down and concentrate on how to do that. I have seen some great tutorials on several blogs lately.

We never got to The Hunger Games last week so Builder Bob and I are going tonight…..lots of popcorn and pop coming up!

 

and get quilt tutorials sent to you twice a week!

    Hope you enjoy the movie. My DH is boycotting (his word) our local theatre. He thinks they charge too much for tickets and popcorn. We haven't been to a movie in a long while. But all my friends who say "Hunger Games" said it was amazing.
