So, I decided that since my mother loved the spiral table runner I made her last year for Christmas that I'd make her another one. Here is the one I made last year using a 9 degree wedge ruler.
Yesterday I pulled a few Christmas theme prints from my stash. I even got to use an old JoAnn's fabric (last green fabric on right) from a block of the month so long ago that I can remember the year. I'd decided years ago that I wasn't going to use the border fabric as intended.
I took those fabrics and cut strips and sewed them into stratas. I then cut the stratas with a 10 degree wedge ruler. I love the colors in this one! Also, instead of organizing the fabrics from light to dark like I did in the first runner, I organized them from one color family to another color family. That made the light areas float in the center.
\Here is a comparison of the two sizes. Also note that I have two extra strips in the Christmas runner that I wasn't able to cut the first time I made the quilt.
I still had a little time left before bed and I also got to play with another project using Christmas fabrics. Now I need to figure out what to do with the center; pieced or plain.
