I loved mariagiannina's table runner (see link) so I had to see if I could come up with an ITH version.

I used a batik kaftan as a source of fabric and was a bit limited as to how I could use it. My runner was made in 4 sections, joined and backed in the hoop. There is a small gap at one end waiting to be hand stitched.

Looks great. Really like the triangular quilting effect

You're so clever to work this out Sue. I'm in awe of your mathematical mind. Love Chris

It is beautiful Sue. I love your fabric choices as well. I am always amazed at how you are able to take an idea or pattern and be able to turn it into an ith pattern. Well bone.

Love your ITH version, you're so clever to work that out! HST take a bit longer, love your colours too.
I made 5 of them in different colours, but the photos are too big to post. I had one similar to yours.
I love the quilting too, I didn't have the time to quilt the ones I made, just did in the ditch, and I told the girls they have to do the quilting on them, since we have all done a class with template quilting, I said it would be good practice for them! LOL

Faster than a speeding bullet, she whips one out! WOW.

I just knew you would come with a ITH version. Very well done.

Great job! I had to enlarge the picture - to stop "seeing" HST and see how you really made it. Nice piece of engineering!

It's great to see this table topper in another color wave. Your quilting is just perfect for it too.

Cleverly done. The 'all half square triangles' method got me sidetracked at first when I thought about it. Love the quilting.

HST are not really needed to get the same effect - couldn't have done it ITH anyway with HST. I love stitch and flip!

I know, thinking horizontally was my second thought. S&F does wonders. Never a wonky seam.

So do I when it all works out right!

Nicely done...what size blocks did you use...any quilting on the know how I love to see the back too!

spendlove by spendlove 18 Feb 2018

The back is completely plain because it is bagged - added as I went along. No way it could be quilted through unless I was prepared to bind.

spendlove by spendlove 18 Feb 2018

The blocks are 30 cm tall and 17 cm wide.
