Earth, Wind and Water Table Runner

One of the projects that I want to focus on this year is making small projects, such as table runners.  To do this, I decided to go through my years old saved collection of downloaded from the internet and magazine patterns.  If I don’t care for the pattern anymore, then I am passing it on.  If I like it, then I am going to make it, and then pass the pattern on.

Last month, I made the Curved Nine Patch table runner.

This month I am working with a pattern saved from Quiltmaker magazine back in Sept./Oct. 2009.  The pattern is called Earth, Wind and Water.  (I was able to find one of the off center pineapple block foundation patterns used in this table runner here.) 

It is a paper pieced pattern.

I do not like paper piecing.  I find the whole process tedious.

Nevertheless…I like the pattern.  So I shall make it once, and pass on the pattern to someone else when I am finished.

Four of the blocks have 27 pieces each.

Each!

Here is one:

With the exception of the borders, I have the table runner pieced.

Next time that I share this project, I will have the borders sewn, and the table runner quilted.

Carry on!
