little quilt monday~~~charms on point table runner

Little Quilt Monday

I have used my charms on point technique many times for larger quilts, but this time I decided to make a table runner.   I used 25  five inch charm squares from a charm pack of A Stitch in Color by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda.  The backing fabric is osnaburg cotton that gives the look of linen.

I used bright yellow and olive green crochet threads for the hand stitching.  I stitched the yellow going one direction and the green going the other direction making a crosshatch design.

The striped binding is from the same Moda fabric collection as the charm squares.  The table runner measurements are 15.5 X 30.5 inches.   Its fun to see how these turn out...this one started as a square...5 rows up and 5 rows down and then I used my technique to turn them on point.

Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday

1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.
2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.
3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and, please link back to my blog post.
4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here.

Elizabeth, that's a cute runner. I just ordered the same charm pack and am trying to figure out what to do with it. The colors are so bright and vibrant. That's the perfect binding for it. Was it part of the collection?

The hand quilting is so uniform, and I love the colors of the runner. Bright colors are always so cheerful.

The design and colors are so funky! I just adore the mix of fruits, polka dots, swirls, and fruits. Hahaha! The stitches at the back look neat too. It shows you are a professional in doing your craft.
