Ruby Flower Table Runners

I finished up the binding on my Red Ruby 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 a 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 🙂 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 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.

Don’t forget to look at the tutorial for the Red Ruby Floral Mini Runner.

    Love the table runners.
    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.

  18. oh Connie these are just gorgeous i will have to make at least one of these runners,well done.xx
