Fabric Tuesday: Origins Table Runner

I love checking things off my To Do list.  I have always been a list person, so much so that I sometimes have lists of lists!  This time of year is my most list-heavy, between planning holiday budgets, gifts, and meals, and it should come as no shock that I'm rocking a pretty hardcore To Sew list for the next two months, with two awesome swaps that I'm involved in as well as a bunch of handmade holiday gifts.  But today, I got to check off another item from two lists - my holiday gift list and my To Sew list.  Yippee!

I used a pattern from P.S. I Quilt, one Rachel so aptly named the Lickety Split table runner.  The pattern comes together super easy, I highly recommend it!

I worked on practicing my outline quilting on this one, that was pretty fun.  I adore the effect that outline quilting gives.  Having used a simple Kona solid for the back, the outline quilting totally stands out and looks really cool on the back.  Here's hoping it's not too modern a look for the recipient.

Stay tuned on Wednesday to see how clogged my sewing desk is becoming!  I've probably got way too many projects in progress at the moment, so it's going to be a lengthy WIP list!  And don't forget to check into what's going on at Fabric Tuesday at QuiltStory, I always love the inspiration I get over there.


  1. I love the runner...you did a great job.

    Can't wait to see your sewing desk! =)

  2. Love you choice of colours and fabric in this runner. Well done :)

  3. Your runner is very pretty and the quilting is right on! I have read back about your quilt along and it sounds like a lot of fun. I may be back later today to join in with you. I have been contemplating doing one on my blog.So, I think I will get my feet wet with you. :)

  4. this is pretty. i like how the quilting looks against the back of this.

  5. Very striking, nice colors! I don't normally gravitate to green but I really like this.

  10. Great table runner! You've just given me a great idea on what to give for Christmas to a few people on my list. I'm going to hop on over to P.S. I Quilt right now. Thank you!

  12. I'm considering a jelly roll of Origins for a mystery quilt class I'm taking in January. It is gorgeous! Love it.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)
