Work in Progress Wednesday-#32

Written by Linda Chaney, mother


I saw a snowball tablerunner somewhere and remembered how much I liked the simplicity of the pattern. I knew I had a pack of "candies," 42 2-1/2" precut squares, that would be perfect for this project.

I found a background print, a leftover piece from another quilt project that was perfect to use to make the one inch snowball corners and the binding.

To each 2-1/2" square, a one inch square was sewn diagonally to each of the four corners and trimmed. I added six, 2-1/2" squares from my stash to add a bit of spark and create the size I wanted.

I will have to go to the fabric store to purchase backing for this project since these colors are really outside my stash collection.  Such a dilemma!


The only other question remaining is:  Do I add a narrow border? Any thoughts?

  1. Depending on what color you are thinking for binding... a red boarder, in my opinion would really make it pop!

  2. Lovely colour selection. I'd also go with a red border.

  3. Lovely little quilt. I'd love at a thin border that matches the small corners so the snowballs float in the space.

  4. I would probably use the background as a small border to make them float. Super cute!
