I love small accessible projects. A table runner (or small wall quilt) is a perfect project to start and finish in a weekend.
This table runner design only consists of 4 blocks. Each block is the same, made from the same fabrics, making cutting out a breeze. I call this pattern “Twirl” as each block is rotated through 90 degrees to make it appear different from its adjacent blocks. You will “Twirl” each block. For my samples, my choice of fabrics was from the hand-dyed batik range from Turtle Hand Batik.
Make the table runner pop with a selection of high contrasting circles. These circles are fused on to the top of the blocks. If you prefer, you can hand appliqué your circles.
