Coral Bells Runner from Scraps

Hi there!  I'm excited to share a finish with you this week.  This was a fun one for me, because it wasn't pre-planned.  See, I made a custom table runner back in October (you can see it here), but I unexpectedly ended up with a bunch of leftover half-square triangles.

Well, the first was so pretty that I couldn't just leave those little blocks unloved, right?

So here's what I made!

There are SO many option for design with half-square triangles, but I really want to come up with something I hadn't done before...and I really like it!

I did have to be extra careful to keep them all turned the right way...laying the blocks out was a little tricky.

I chose to do the same paisley quilting pattern I did on the last one.  I really enjoy doing this pattern.  It's highly therapeutic.

I was pleased to still have enough of the binding leftover for this runner too!  There's something great about a good plaid binding.

The finished size was 12.5" x 48".

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Your paisley quilting looks really good. My paisleys always end up too dense -- I like how yours puff up in the middle of each one. Lovely table runner, and great use for the extras! I bought a HST die for my Accuquilt GO! Baby die cutter, planning to crank out some scrap quilts of my own. Hadn't thought of smaller projects like table runners for the scraps, but it's a great idea since scraps, by their nature, are often just a little of this and one or two of that.

  2. Hi Summer,
    What a fabulous table runner! And a 'freebie' of sorts - that's what I always think when they are made from leftovers from another project. I LOVE HSTs! Is there anything more versatile than them?!! I'm going to PIN your project just so I can remember it in the future. You deserve a whoop whoop, although I found you on Myra's website. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Lovely use of leftovers. Love the homespun look of your fabrics.

  4. That looks really great. Wonderful way to use up scraps and lovely quilting.

  5. Congrats on your newly completed table runner. Love, love, LOVE that it was made from leftovers!!

  6. Great finish. You really can do a lot of designs/layouts with HSTs...the possibilities are endless. Thanks for linking up with TGIFF.
