Sewing Just Because + Fabric Stack Friday

There hasn’t been much sewing around here for the past few days.  My sister is visiting from Oregon and we’ve been helping another sis get ready for a few Holiday Boutiques / Craft Fairs / Whatever-it-is-they-are-called-where-you-live (what ARE they called where you live??)

I will show you what I was working on earlier this week though -

First of all I cut into this fat eighth bundle of Wrens & Friends that I got last spring from quilt market (this is where Fabric Stack Friday comes in!)

I’ve been flipping through this delightful book, trying to decide what to make first:

A Quilting Life book

I settled on one of the table runners – mostly because I need a nice fall-ish one for my table.  In a short time I had my fabrics for the blocks all cut and half square triangles made.

By that evening the three star blocks were finished

And now I’m just deciding on what to use for the border and binding.  I’m not convinced my fat eighth bundle has what I need for the border so a trip to my local shop is most likely inevitable. 

Star blocks from A Bright Corner

I’m hoping to find maybe a light green for the border and a brown for the binding?  What would you choose?

Have a delightful Friday!


  1. I love the narrow flat folded fabric sewn on just before adding the border (so it looks like piping). n that case, I might border and bind it in the same fabric. I'm sure whatever you settle on will be beautiful. Love the blocks!

  2. Oh, I love your star blocks...I can't wait to see your finished runner!!!
