Dust off a quilt book blog hop

First off, I want to thank Bea Lee for this amazing hop that inspired  me to dust off an old book and make something from it, large or small.

I chose this book, "Herloom quilts"

I love fans, so why not!

Rummaged through my Island Batik Scraps....yes, I know, they are a mess.  For some reason when I fix them up, in no time at all they get in there and play and this is what I get!

The fans were so much fun to make.  I was so tempted to just make a quilt and I still might.

Makes for a different table runner! 

                                         I have enjoyed it being displayed in my living room

It is different, adds a punch of color, and is a conversation piece.

Thanks again Bea Lee!

great piece!

Annie said...

The fans sure do make a different style table runner. I like it. And I always love batiks.

Gene Black said...

OOoh Barb, I love your table runner. I particularly love the idea of doing it with no binding. Did you do a "pillowcase" method to join and turn it?

Jennifer Gail said...

Really pretty Barb!

Jennifer Schifano Thomas said...

Wow! I love your fans. They are so colorful and fun. I've never tried that block. I need to add it to my list.

Shasta Matova said...

These are pretty fans and I really like the layout like that.

What a fun and cheerful table runner. While that design would certainly look great in a quilt, I think it makes a stunning table runner. Total #CreativeGoodness.
