Table Runner Mania

It's about time I update my blog again. I've been working on too many projects at once and not getting anything completely finished! Here are some twisted pinwheels that I've been experimenting with. A table topper with 7 pinwheels:

Another spring table topper with 5 larger pinwheels. I got the main fabrics in a bundle from my daughter in law for Christmas:

This will be a little doll quilt once it's quilted. I have cool striped fabric for the binding in perfect colours :-). This is done with a charm pack:

Here is the beginning of a hexagon shaped table topper in Christmas fabrics. I'm doing the math on cutting it in the right shape and Math is definitely not my strong point :-):

I also did a spring table topper using a FQ and a metre of striped border fabric. This turned out really cool and I tried out a new quilting design in the center:

The finished topper...the colours are like the above photo, not the bottom one!

From the cut offs of the mitered corners a hexagon mini table topper can be made using a 60 degree Clearview ruler. And, from the little leftovers, I managed to get two fun is this?

The mini table topper fits beautifully in the center of the large one. I need to quilt it yet. I hope to use it on my round glass table on our deck outside when spring arrives.
