Fluffer Nutter Table Runner Finish – Mystery QAL
Fluffer Nutter is on the left and Picnic is a complimentary fabric from the same line on the right. I think these fabrics have a modern edge to them. We chose to use that modern fabric with an older pattern and one of our new favorites, the Evening Star.
Sue cut some strips, I sewed them together to make strip sets and we made four nine-patch center blocks. We alternated the centers – one with more light blue featured and others with more navy. We added the HSTs, a border and that was it. Then the hard part – how to quilt it??
Thankfully, Cindy had to do some quilting on some quilts for her mom. One of those quilts involved stars, luckily for me. Cindy included some closeup shots of how she quilted the stars and BINGO. Finally! That is how I can quilt this table runner, and will also inspire the Evening Star quilt that has been on hold for so long. Rather simple, triangles in the triangle squares and squares in the square squares. (Woo – how many times can you type square in one sentence!)
Here’s a closeup of the quilting. Basic straight-line in the skinny light blue border, and a chevron in the wider outer border.
A Fluffer Finish
This table runner went together very quickly! It finished at 15″ by 41″. I had thought about giving it to my sister but realized it probably is too short for her dining room table. We have something else in mind for her! Here’s one final shot of the Fluffer runner on our dinette table.
Thank you to Cindy and Tracy for hosting and offering a fun mystery quilt along! Here is a link to all the Mystery QAL March Finishes as they are shared.
