Can You Slice and Stitch?

Update: The Slice and Stitch Quilt Block Tutorial is now available at as a PDF Downloadable Pattern for Only $1.00.  Click Here.

I needed to make a table runner from this fabric, because it matched this cool plate. 

Found a striped fabric that would blend well.

I cut strips and started slicing --- Here is the link to the original post on "How to slice and stitch."  

When I created this table runner, I ran out of daylight!

Then I quilted.  I outline stitched a few of the flowers with a meandering in the background.  

I wiggle line quilted through the strips.

Stitched in my name and the year.

I love to take photos of these beautiful tomatoes. The colors are incredible! and they are not blue!  You know how I love BLUES...

Yes, I know I need to do the binding... I started it this afternoon.  I'll share it another day, along with the mug rugs I made with the leftover scraps.

Take to enjoy the colors around you...

What a happy table runner! The colors are pretty too. Sort of fall-ish but better :)

Very nice. It looks perfect with the plate too.

When you have a beautiful fabric, sometimes less it more. I love the way you high-lighted the fabric design with the quilting. Excellent job!
