You guys! You have been voting up a storm since last week and the result was a photo-finish (or the quilt-along equivalent)! Over 500 of you voted and it came down to the wire: the Winter Table Runner was leading from Wednesday, August 6th through the middle of the day on Monday, August 11, when the Pinwheel Table Runner made a late rally.
However, overnight voting made the Winter Table Runner from Quilt Sashings & Settings The basics & beyond the winner by a margin of just 12 votes. This is going to be a really fun project and we are really excited to get started on it with you all!
How the Quilt-Along Will Work
We will be posting instructions for each step of the project according to the following schedule:
On Wednesday, we will post a detailed list of all the fabrics you need and how to cut them.
On Friday, we will post the fabrics that E.B. and I have chosen for our table runners. Also, you will learn how to share pictures of your own project with everyone else who is participating.
On Tuesday, we will post the step-by step instructions for how to stitch the blocks and sashing units for your table runner.
On Wednesday, you’ll get the step-by-step directions for sewing your pieced units together into your quilt top.
On Tuesday, we’ll have some suggestions for how to quilt your table runner, as well as instructions for adding the binding to finish your project.
Take some pictures of your lovely table runner and share them with the group! (And don’t worry if you don’t finish right on schedule…you’ll be able to share your photos whenever you get done!)
We hope you’re as excited about this table runner quilt-along as we are! Be sure that you’re subscribed to the blog to get immediate updates, or to the email list for weekly updates.
