These runners are from a pattern from a book By Calico Printworks. I had so much fun coming up with different ways to quilt each one.
In all of the black sashings I used a ruller called Wiggle from Gadget Girls that I picked up while at MQS last month. Other designs are straight lines, U turn lines, ribbon candy and pebbles.
I really like how the center block came out on this one. I used Mindy Wylies swag ruler to make the oval part and then just stitched an echo of that in the center of the black. Inside the oval I stitched U turn lines. In the border I alternated the direction of the U turn lines.
Using a lot of the same lines but in a different way can make a big difference.
