Table Scraps and WOOFA

Today’s post is twofold. I need to document my recent finishes for 2 of my monthly challenges.

First up is Table Scraps. My Table Scraps took a turn this month. I was all ready to make Star Badge Runner, but I just wasn’t happy with my fabric pull, still mulling that one.

At some point in the month I saw a neat design and decided to go off script and make it instead. I planned it out in EQ8 and then got to work on it. This was the result.

OK, good enough, or is it? No, not quite. So out came the seam ripper so I could take out the bottom 6 Geese to turn them upside down. Why would I do that? So I could add another star end. 


Much better!

And before long it was quilted and ready for display. 

 

I used a new panto I pick up for free at UrbanElementz. I love it!!


I wanted to get precise with the binding, but I was just shy of having enough navy. No matter, I just winged it. It stops and starts one HST in on the Star ends. 

Project #2 is my WOOFA for May, Ripples. This began life as Footnote, pattern by Crimson Tate. I am making it for my Great-Niece who lives in North Carolina. They live life on lakes and beaches when possible, so I named it Ripples because of the rings I quilted into it. They are like the ripples in the water, growing out from the center. Orange Peels are in the other blocks, rotated to follow the color spokes of each block. 


Alas, I ran out of steam on finishing this one, so I have less than 1/4 of the quilting left to do, which will be easily finished today, our trip south yesterday preempted my finish on this one. 

So that’s my recap on those Challenges, plus another look at my 2021 UFO finish, Figo quilt for my neighbor’s toddler.

  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty! I love how you changed the runner from successful to a stunner! Sometimes we just have to change the original plans.

  2. Ok, now it worked ok! Gah!! I like how you used the two colors in the binding! What’s the technique for making the color change at a precise point?

    1. Judy, sorry you are having issues, I can’t reply on Blogger posts sometimes, no clue why! As to the binding, I just cut the blue strip I had in half and then loosely pinned it in place to see how much it covered, then I cut it 1/2 longer to allow for the seaming. The red just filled in as needed. That’s about the only way I can describe it? As I sewed the last bit I did have to adjust the seam, but it’s all good! > >

  3. Very fun table runner! Your modifications to add the other row of stars is perfect. Ripples is coming together beautifully. Enjoy finishing off that project. Happy stitching this week. Hope that Diva is slowly improving and feeling better each day.

  4. Hi Chris! Your timely runner turned out just fab!! I love the look of it and would proudly display it on my table should you get sick of it. I might just have to borrow the idea as I plan to ‘whip up’ some runners in r/w/b. I would never have noticed the binding switch if you hadn’t pointed it out. Amazing how it just lined up perfectly! Great job. Ripples will be done in no time. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks Roseanne. You just go ahead and make one girl! I just love it every time I look at it. And if you want, I will quilt it for you using that awesome panto! Ripples is off the frame and waiting for binding. > >
