  • Writer's picturePola Quilting

It is easy to make last minute quilt or table runner if you have your scraps ready for sewing. For me, that is the main advantage of following magic numbers principle when dealing with all sorts of scraps from other projects or if I am prepping recycled fabrics. It took me 15 minutes from start to finish to prepare 3 Candle Light blocks for a table runner I will be using during Christmas. Blocks are large, so if you decide you would like to make it into quilt, it will be done in no time.

Happy sewing!

If it’s a large block, it makes a quick quilt or a backing of a quilt. If it is made from your own magic number pre cuts, it takes only 5 min to make one block. Win win. With this Wonky Checkers block design, you can make upcycled shirts, crumbs and any other mix of scraps stand out for a nicely balanced quilt. Either way it will be quick and awesome. Happy sewing!

It is fun, it is easy and it will add extra detail to any quilted project. Thread painting is great to embellish plain blocks or add extra design to the layout. It will also add a bit of sturdiness. I have been using this method successfully with bags, pouches and book covers so far and I am sure there will be more opportunities in the future. Have a go and have fun! Happy sewing everyone.
