Stepping Stones Quilt Pattern A Table Runner Or Wall Hanging.
The Stepping Stones quilt pattern designed by Mabeth Oxenreider, truly lends itself to being a very unique table runner.
The interplay of lights and dark’s give this table topper a dimensional feel. The colors in these Log Cabin blocks are similar in value, but each round is clearly visible because the colors are opposites on the color wheel. To get started, look through scraps, mini charms or charm squares, and choose your fabric for the 2 1/2″ center square, then bring in fabrics that co-ordinate with elements of contrast.
Make up four blocks, and add an interesting sashing made up of 2 1/2 ‘ squares and rectangles. Use red and green for a stunning Holiday table topper, or choose colors to match decor and for any time of year. Don’t worry about binding outside and inside corners, there’s no need! The quilt top is stitched to the backing with right sides together before it’s quilted. The featured quilt is not bound in a traditional manner. Instead, it has a self binding.
The finished block size is 7″ square. The finished size of the four square table topper is 16″ square. Easily make the table topper larger by adding extra blocks, which can also be displayed as a stunning wall hanging.
I captured a portion of this Stepping Stones quilt pattern used for a wall quilt. It kind of gives you an idea of how it might look using two rows as a table runner, or a narrow wall hanging to display in an awkward space needing a little color.
Here’s the true beauty of this showcase wall quilt using the Stepping Stones pattern. The finished size of the Stepping Stones wall hanging is 34″ x 25″. Use batiks to capture the same effect.
