Project Quilting 11.6 - Vibrant and Vivacious

I think many of us are feeling a little unfocused this week, I know I have been.  It was great for me to set aside a day to focus on this challenge and do some fun sewing - I really had fun with it and love what I ended up making.  And I forgot about everything around me for just a little while!

Spring Zing Batiks Charm Pack
I knew right away that I wanted to use a set of 5 inch squares from Island Batik - Spring Zing.  I got these in a giveaway at quilt guild and have been saving them for something fun.  They are pretty spring colors.

I had the beginning of an idea started in EQ8, so I printed it up and got sewing, confident that I would figure out my design as I went.

After I sewed my blocks together, I decided to add a pieced border using rectangles cut from the remaining charm squares.

After quilting, I finished it up with a spring green binding.

This table runner ended up finishing at about 22 x 56.  I love the colors and how happy and fresh it looks.  This was finished in my home in Coos Bay, OR.  I am sad I didn't get all the challenges done for Project Quilting this year, but am really glad I was able to participate!  I can't wait for next's always so much fun, and I plan on continuing on as a sponsor...I'll have several new patterns to share by then!

This is so beautiful Pamela. I never think of turning my blocks like this, but I have to start trying. Stay safe!

I wish there were extra PQ challenges this year to help us all cope with the extra challenges we are facing around the world right now! You have created a beautiful table runner! Love the way you turned the blocks on point. It's going to add a splash of happiness to your table! Be well!

Sweet, colorful pinwheel blocks are just the best! They really shine against the light background. I can only imagine how many smiles were added to the world this past week as we sewed for this challenge. It was perfectly timed to keep our minds and hands busy while bringing color to our lives. Well done, Pam!

Love how you set them. It's nice to have a finish and a table runner. I don't think we can have enough of them!
