QAYG Black Cat Table Runner

My procedure went really well earlier this week… everything went smoothly, the results were good, and the anesthesia wore off quickly enough that after a nap at home, I felt pretty much back to normal. And since I had a few podcasts to catch up on, I went ahead and finished up the table runner I’ve been working on while it rained… all in all, a pretty cozy sick day!

I’ve been wanting to make something with low volume fabrics (neutral/white-on-white/low contrast) and I loved having a table runner on the breakfast bar during the holidays (QAYG Patchwork Tree table runner blogged here), so I basically did the exact same project with a new block (the basic Cat block from Oh, Fransson‘s Catvent Quilt-Along). Once again, I used the QAYG technique from Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern by Jera Brandvig to make each block, which resulted in denser quilting that I would usually be able to do (more because of my patience/skill level than anything to do with my home machine). The QAYG technique quilts each block to individual squares of batting, then you join them all together and attach to the backing with a simpler quilting. I just did a basic grid, then finished it up with cheater binding. It was really fun to work with scrappy black and white fabrics, and I’ve got a ton of other ideas in my mind for my next low volume project.

You’ve already seen a few progress pics along the way, and here are a few more!
