Stacks quilted table runner from batik scraps

I finished up another Stacks table runner and this time I used some batik scraps I had in my stash. These weren’t teeny tiny scraps but pieces big enough to get several blocks out of.

Take a look at the snow! I took this photo yesterday morning, hard to believe that it is April here in Iowa! By afternoon all of the snow was gone.

I used three quilt blocks for this table runner. The batiks were leftover from an Island Batik project I did last year.

It was fun to take photos of both table runners in the snow.

If you missed my earlier post on my other table runner, you can read about the wine batik Stacks table runner.

Here are both of the table runners hanging on the snow-covered dog fence. I just did a simple meandering free-motion quilting.

Guess how I decided what to use for the binding? I had some leftover long strips from the backing from another quilt. There was just enough for the binding.

The binding is completely machine stitched using my easy machine binding tutorial.

The backing is an older batik that I think I bought several years ago from Connecting Threads. Notice how I am using some of Builder Bob clamps to add a little weight to the table runner so it doesn’t fall off of the tree branch.

I am having so much fun with my Stacks quilt pattern. So far I have made two quilts and two table runners. I also have another quilt cut out.

At the end of February, we ordered this new table and were lucky enough to get it in March just days before non-essential businesses were closed. This is so much neater than the little round table we had and I love the shelves on the one side.

The table runner fits perfectly on the table doesn’t it!

Remember when I said I had another quilt cut out? Well here are the fabrics that I am using. I had a five-pack of fat quarters that I believe I won several years ago and I am adding four other fabrics that I had in my stash.

    The batiks make this table runner very special. Your tutorial shows how a few scraps can be turned into a beautiful addition to any place in the home. Thanks for sharing – especially the pictures out in the snow.

  2. I have lived my entire life in San Diego. Snow in April would be a killer. It’s supposed to be 80 here today. I have already planted some tomatoes and cucumbers. Love your cheerful attitude and your beautiful quilts.

    Hi Connie! I love this table runner. Love the colors you used. We had snow here in Pa. too. At about 8:00 pm last night it looked like a winter wonderland My husband said it is called the onion snow. Oh well I guess Spring will come. Have a good week.

    Hi Connie. I really look forward to reading your posts and have tried some of your lovely table runner patterns. I am quite new to quilting, having retired as a teacher in June 2018. It has become a wonderful hobby and one that I especially enjoy as we spend these long days at home. Keep up the great work and stay safe!
