    Quilting Ideas for Spiral Table Runners?

    So far, I have stitched in the ditch or used a decorative wavy stitch following the strips on the spiral table runners. Have any of you made these table runners? If so, what kind of quilting did you do?

    Is it the spicy spiral table runner that looks like an S? I think SITD would be fine or follow the wave motion down the runner.

    Yes, it is. I have done a few and I wanted to try something different . I have three more to finish up.

    You could practice different FMQ designs in each section if you want something different. How about stitching in the ditch but bumping it along the separate coloured segments kind of like stair steps? How about putting a funky design fabric on the back and quilt around the back designs?

    I've done mine with a scroll-like FM quilting to mimic the quilt.

    I've only done loops down the length of each spiral. I had to change color 4 times on the one that's on the machine now. The loops get smaller or larger depending on the size of the fabric piece it passes over.

    This is my first attempt to upload a picture to this forum...okay...on this runner, I used straight stitching and followed the curves of the runner...that would be different from SID and the wavy stitch I used on other runners. I could not find a photo of one with the wavy stitching. Hope this shows up in the reply.

Size:  1.41 MB I'm not sure if you can see the stitching on these. Both have loops down the length of the runner. These were my first two, so don't look too carefully.

    Very nice work! I will try those loops on my last three runners. Looks like you used binding to finish yours off. Neat idea!

    Some quilt stores carry this pattern or you can order it online. Google spiral table runners and a whole bunch of web sites will pop up for you...you'll see some really nice suggestions for color choices.

    Mine came from philipsfiberart.com Cheryl has the the pattern and a 10 degree ruler. You will need a nine or ten degree ruler for this. It's not hard if you read carefully and mark off the cuts as you make them.

    Yes, I bind mine. I've never had good luck sandwiching quilts so I don't try. 1 1/2" or 1 1/4" bias binding works fine. I didn't double it like I do on a quilt.

    edit: I just walked by the sewing machine. The latest one's loops are bigger in the bigger spaces.

    I first saw it on this board and had to have it also. You can Google Spicy Spiral Tablerunner and come up with places to order it. You also have to buy a special ruler. It either a 9 or 10 degree ruler. When you do order it, get the longer of the 2 offered. The extra length helps. I'm sorry, I don't remember where I got mine.
    The cutting is a little strange, and you end up with something that looks like swiss cheese. They are so awesome when they are done!
