My Twisting Ribbon Table Runner for Riley Blake blog

I think it is crazy awesome that I get to make things and share them with other quilters. Seriously. So. Fun!

I am thrilled when other people let me play with their fabric.

I made a western inspired table runner. I just got back from visiting my Grandma in Utah. (We went to visit the Great Salt Lake. Isn’t she cute?)

She is a Cowgirl through and through. I just knew she would love this table runner.

She was thrilled to receive it and had to stop everyone that came into her house, and show them the table runner. So embarrassing to be having a family reunion of sorts and have her stop the fun to show my table runner. But it meant she loved it. Then she folded it up and put it aside. There were a zillion cousins running around, so I understand her not wanting it to get messed up. But I hope that now that we are all gone, she pulls it out and lays it out on the table, or coffee table. I make things to be used.


I was going to leave spaces of the white unquilted. But I had so much fun with FMQ that I did the whole background. I SITD around all the printed fabric. (Stitched in the Ditch). I think the dense FMQ makes the ribbons really stand out.

Even the backing is the fun red bandana fabric.

So much fun! My Grandma loves it and I hope you do too. Go forth and make your own.
