Last month when my daughter and I went to Galena, IL she picked out a pattern for a table runner and bought some of the fabrics and the ruler. When I got home I had a couple of things to work on and forgot all about it……sound familiar?
The table runner pattern was the Spicy Spiral table runner. I can no longer find a digital pattern but you can order a paper pattern at Phillips FiberArts
The other day my neighbor was over and saw the ruler which reminded me to get the runner made.
The pattern is Spicy Spiral Table Runner which the shop mailed to me. It is only as I’m writing this post that I notice the pattern says it is for a 9-degree Wedge ruler, I used a 10-degree Wedge ruler and had no problem other than I wasn’t able to cut the very first piece of the strata. My ruler is by Pillips Fiber Art and I have several others that I bought but haven’t used yet. There are free patterns on their website!
I arranged the fabrics the way I wanted them for my strata and also marked my pieces on a little swatch (didn’t really need this).
Isn’t it cute to see the two sections you make!
Once I got to this point I was all excited and took a pic with my phone and sent it to my daughter in a text. Then I got a text from her asking………….where are the blue and pink fabrics?????? Oh boy.
She had bought the green and a couple of oranges and I forgot she wanted the other colors in it.
The store sample looked different but neither one of us can remember how the colors were arranged. Thankfully she bought a yard of the yellow print so I’ll be making it again.
We are thinking of using the yellow print on the outside sections where the orange and green are, then I’ll add each of the other colors she wants in the center. This should be interesting!
I finished piecing the Spicy Spiral table runner and even got it all quilted. Continue reading about it.
After making the first Spicy Spiral yesterday in the wrong colors I went ahead and made it again…..sigh…..I don’t care for the way this one looks. I really like the first one…. a good thing I get to keep it.
Here is the Spicy Spiral table runner with some pink and blue which is what my daughter liked. It uses 8 colors, my daughter wanted blue and pink added….she didn’t say anything about the red but it was in the print so I added it. I don’t think I like the pink in it.
Now that I have made this pattern 2 times if I make it again, I think I will use 9 fabrics so the yellow print can be on the outsides and also in the center. What do you think?
Which do you like better? I prefer the orange/green one.
Be sure and take a look at my quilted Spicy Spiral Table Runners post where I’ll share how I quilted this table runner.
I was so tickled to see this deer by the river the other day. I was just heading out the basement door when I saw it come up from the river, I ran back upstairs to get my camera and was able to get this shot from the deck just before it ran between houses. We seldom see a deer here by the river……now 2 blocks away on the highway that is a different story.
