Quick Island Batik runner

Purple batik table topper with prairie points1

I decided to make a 2nd border/binding project this month with Island Batik, also because these panels are in the current quiltybox I believe.

The panel is by Leah Day, and in my ambassador box the strip had 4 panels. I decided to just use 3 of them, and then I had a matching purple yardage piece that wasn’t part of a bundle, so I figured I’d add a small border and also binding, and I quickly cut that out with the 2 1/2” strip die by accuquilt Smile

I quilted the whole thing first,

then to try something different for the border/binding.

My friend made a quilt recently with prairie points on it, and it was really cute, so I figured I’d try some for this runner as well, I used my 2 1/2” square die from the 8” QUBE set and cut out a bunch, then folded and ironed twice to make the prairie points

I didn’t know how many I needed so I made a bunch


Near the upper left corner I laid them out from had the tip of the first one line up with the seam of the border, then overlapped two more and I also added two to the side

I did the same in the opposite corner and then basted them all down, as it’s easier before adding the binding

Once the binding was added it looked really cute!
