This is my modified version of a Spicy Spiral Runner using some lovely burgundy and brown fabrics. I had about 5 or more yards of the brown gardening fabric that I really don't like. It came in a box of fabric that was given to me.
I've been using it for scrap projects, to tie tomatoes up, etc. This was my very first runner I made last year and used this fabric just in case it didn't work out. But I really like it! The colors go well together and has a nice fall feel to it.
I had a small bit of batik fabric and added some matching yellows, greens and blues. I sewed strips together, but just didn't like it, so I cut them diagonally and sewed them back together. I also used batting to make it puffy when machine quilted.
At my local thrift store was this small bag of vintage fabric and couldn't resist! Inside was a quilt block and bits of fabric in all sizes.
I love the colors and design of the block. The quilter machine sewn the pieces together.
You can see how its coming apart and has stains. Adorable fabrics!
Can you see the blue blocks that were pieced together to make 2 whole blocks. The blue block on the left has a long seam. It looks like a wrinkle.
I didn't want to make more blocks and thought it would make a great picture that would honor the quilter that made it. So off to Hobby Lobby to purchase a frame and put it up.
Here it is in my spare bedroom, along with my embroidery dresser scarf (with the edge not done yet, yikes!) and two other quilts that I make.
Thanks for visiting,
