First, another small finish. I've been having fun playing with batik fabric lately.
Here's the finished table runner. Lots of half square triangle blocks!
I just did simple quilting as the fabric speaks for itself. I used a variegated "Rainbows" thread from Superior thread in the border and block centres, and just some simple stitch in the ditch for the rest.
On Friday, I finally began cutting the wonderful Oriental print that I found last winter. It had a huge 24 inch pattern repeat. I spread out three of the blocks - to - be, to show some of the variations. I haven't tried octagon blocks before, and these will have kaleidoscope triangles to complete the corners. I spent some time yesterday, adding a narrow accent band to the outside edge of each piece. I've cut 30 blocks, as I want a larger quilt (the original pattern was only 40x40 inches).
