Hello! Today is the big reveal day for the Little Ruby Quilt Along sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop. And I’m excited to show you my finished project!
I really loved learning to use new to me rulers in making these blocks (the
Creative Grids Hexagon Trim Tool and the Creative Grids Double Strip Ruler). I’ll definitely use both rulers again and again. I realized after making about five blocks that I didn’t have near enough scraps to make the entire quilt, but I was in love with the fabrics I was using and didn’t want to start over. So…I made a table runner!
I used bits and pieces of all of the greys for the binding…and I love how it sets off the edges with just the right amount of contrast.
I used the Little Ruby dots on apple green for my backing…it matched pretty well with the greens in the Sundrops collection.
I also love the quilting pattern my friend Gail used on the quilt…flowers and leaves…just like the fabric on the front!
I sure love this table runner…and I do have enough scraps to make some matching place mats…I’m trying to think of a fun design for them that will really utilize the little pieces I have left over.
If you’ve been sewing along, I hope you’ve had fun with this one. If you haven’t…I highly recommend this project. It’s much easier than one would expect from looking at the quilt!
Be sure to visit these other blogs today to see their version of the Little Ruby quilt!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Beautiful little tablerunner! I've downloaded the instructions for the quilt-along but didn't get any futher then that … perhaps some day;-)

I need to finish some projects so I can add this one to my rotation! Oh who am I kidding. I'm going to add it in anyway. 😀
I love your improvised table runner (aka long mini quilt). My Little Ruby half hexies are going up on the design wall shortly after I arrive at my quilting retreat tomorrow!
