Floral fun table runner done

Hello Everyone!  So glad I can post this for Finish it up Friday and Thank Goodness it's Finished Friday - yoohoo!  I started this project in August and had loads of fun playing around with different flower layouts - it's just like making paper snowflakes...remember doing that as a kid?  Well, this is better, because you're using fabric instead!

I decided to try something different for me and didn't add binding to this project.  I sewed a zigzag stitch over the edge instead.

Here's a closeup of one of the blocks, before quilting.
I'll deconstruct it for you, so you can see how many layers there really are per flower.

Naturally, you can add or take away as many as you like.

That's part of the fun, getting to play.

Before I forget again, here's the book this pattern came from: Skinny Quilts and Tablerunners II.  This is the last quilt in the book and it's a Sue Benner design.


  1. These flowers are fabulous Mary Frances!!! Love them!!!! They look quite fiddly to make ?

  2. Wow! Is that ever different! Very interestingly cut and layered together... I like it! I shall have to give that a go sometime!
    Thanks for sharing Mary-Frances! ;)

  3. Wow is right. Your runner looks great!

  4. Thanks so much for getting back to me Mary Frances. I put your email in a folder and I am definately going to try these !!!!

  5. I love this design and technique and have it on my list of things to try. You should mention where you got this from and the designer of it... I do have the book.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
