Tablerunner.........

I finished the hand stitching on the binding of this tablerunner last night.  It is 11.5" x 33.5".
The back and binding are the same fabric.  It is made with the leftover blocks from the quilts below, both started in 2009.





This one is a remake of the one that I made in 1991 and that was published in "Strips that Sizzle" by Margaret J. Miller.  I sold the original and hoped to make another as good as it was.  I want to finish this wallanging this year and hang it in my living room or dining room.
 
This small quilt was made with more of the blocks.  The color is truer in this photo.  This particular star design takes more dark blocks than light ones so that is why the tablerunner is made of all light blocks, the leftovers.  This wallhanging was finished in 2013 and is for sale on my Wandaful Quilts blog.

Your remake of the purple & gold strip quilt is beautiful! I love the way the colors work & your choice of fabrics. L always learn things from following your blog.

The runner is delightful and the quilting really enhances it. Love the colors in these quilts.

Your post today reminds me of blooming violets in the spring and I love violets. I really needed a pick me up as we woke up to a fresh new blanket of 6" of snow and still coming down at 10:30 a.m. I was elated yesterday to see our whole yard was snow free and now this ! :(

I have that book - I even tried to duplicate your quilt back in 1993 - and I gave up in 1995 - LOL. It was on my design wall for two years and has been lovingly referred to as my "Blue & Yellow Monster" because my LEFT-handed diagonal cuts "reversed" the colors and threw off the block shading from light to dark. I must have tried over twenty variations before settling on the final version posted on my "Quilt Journal" page. I should post some of the "in progress" photos as I tried to find a variation that looked as good as yours - ;))

The 3-D effects created by those color combinations are striking!
