Quilted Bargello Wedge Curved Table Runner
These table runners were prepared as promotion items for a course in a quilt shop – as requested by the owner. It was based on a pattern by Patty Latourelle and I believe she brought back from Quilt Market. I got permission to use the pattern when teaching classes at the time when I made these. I faced the pieced top rather than using a binding for the edge. I like the look. When I recently did a web search, I find that the pattern is available in many places on the web. Just type ‘spicy spiral table runner’. However, I do still have my teaching notes….
As it turned out, the course didn’t run but I have both a picnic and dining room table runner to use or to gift. The first item includes a collection of chili pepper fabrics I gathered on one of my first trips to Phoenix AZ. The second, a monochromatic table runner (picture at the end), was made from a collection of off white fabrics.
I have a couple of different wedge rulers that I can use to make quick and easy items for gifting. There are more items in this portfolio based on their use. Cheryl Phillips has some great idea books and a web site. I found these quick and easy projects great while getting my ‘sea legs’ when re-entering the quilt world and learning the ‘modern’ techniques for piecing and quilting.
