Starting Kawandi inspired tablerunner

 I am starting my third Kawandi inspired quilt.  The first two were small wall hangings and they are hanging side by side on my dining room wall.  This one will be a table runner for the top of a cabinet in our dining room.  I have missed the hand sewing and this will give me hand sewing to work on every day.

I have basted the backing folded over to the front over the batting.   I have posted about the first two in previous posts.  I will have different rules for myself for this Kawandi.  The first two I tried NOT to repeat any fabric.  

Now for this Kawandi I WANT to repeat fabrics more than once.  AND it will be more planned.  That is the way it is starting anyway....I may change my mind as I go along!!

  The photo shows the fabrics I will be using to select pieces as I slowly stitch around and around.  The fabrics I am starting with have purple swirls in the corners with blue on each side.  Then there will be more purples, blues, teals and some dark pinks.  I just love those colors!!!

I started stitching these today and it is a actually a little different than the photo shows.  

I am linking to Kathy's Quilts             Slow Sunday Stitching


Now I am going to check out what everyone else is stitching today....join me in checking!

Smiles and hugs....Caryl


  1. Another beautiful Kawandi pretty in the works. Gorgeous colours. How pretty this will look displayed on top of your cabinet.

    1. Thanks Kim....colors like the beautiful colors of fabrics and flowers you show on your blog!

  2. The colors you are using for the Kawandi table runner are beautiful, I look forward to seeing your progress.

  3. I too love your chosen colors. Enjoy your stitching. I wish I enjoyed doing hand stitching, but I just don’t. I only enjoy hand stitching a quilt binding to the back of the quilt. Ha!

    1. Thanks Annie....the best thing I like about this hand stitching....it can be whatever I want it to be and perfectly imperfect!!
