On The Run Again Preview – Part 2

Back for Part 2!

First, let’s start with a couple randomly selected winners from the last post.

#1 – Kris Pedrow and #2 Sunnybec.

Just send me your shipping address and I will mail out a copy of the new book (below).  My email is hmulder@wecnet.com

On the Run Again cover saturated 500

I really appreciate all the feedback from the last post!  I am always so curious to see if what everyone likes is what my guess would be (or not).  The favorite runners from the post were Chatterbox and Awesome Blossom.


Let’s continue taking the tour around my “booth”.

I have to say – maybe this way isn’t so bad.  I am able to have a much nicer furniture and room settings than I could ever have in my little 10′ x 20′ market booth!


#9 – Nordic Stars

DSC_9804 adj best 600


I rarely do quilts that aren’t totally scrappy, but I am loving the red and white, with just a touch of blue.

DSC_9779 adj


I also think the stripe binding is important on this one.  It just adds to the drama, while keeping the color combo simple and dramatic.

DSC_9811 adj 2


#10 – Divine.    Precut used:  10″ squares

DSC_0004 adj less ripples 600

I am loving anything with 60-degree angles lately, and this runner is yet another example.  After making so many quilts over the last 17 years, I get a little bored with only 90 and 45-degree corners.

DSC_0004 adj less ripples crop


All of the runners in the book that have 60-degree angles use this ruler by Creative Grids.  It’s one of the most popular rulers on the market, so I know a lot of you already have it in your ruler stash.  (It’s also the same one that I used in my Sizzlin’ Sixties book.)


DSC_0077 adj


#11 – Happy Dance.   Precut Used:  Fat Eighth

I wanted to include one or two photos with a kid or two as props.  I’m not sure why I decided to use a setting with 4 moving props, tempting cupcakes and noisy blowers.  My husband just thinks I am a glutton for punishment!  I took tons of photos and not one had all of the kids smiling.  I ended up having to switch a few heads around to get this shot.


DSC_9657 adj 2 carter new head 600


It was still fun though and I like the some of the action shots too.

DSC_9670 light def and sharp walls

This is one of only 2 shots where Carter smiled for me.  I guess the sugar was starting to kick in – as you can see his cupcake no longer has any frosting left.  We got chocolate cake and colored frosting all over my sisters dining room.  Oops!


DSC_9700 adj

I’m guessing you were busy looking at the kids in the last few shots and didn’t even notice the runner, so here is a close-up of just the runner

DSC_0446 adj no background copy

#12 –  The pattern also comes in a topper size.

DSC_0384 adj 600


It’s made using 4 fat eighths and a bit of binding.

DSC_0381 adj


#13 – Venetian Tiles.    Precut Used:  Fat Eighth

DSC_9959 adj 600


This is a great starter project if you want to give 60-degree angles a try.

DSC_9904 adj runner darkened crop 2


BTW – I love this color combination – if you couldn’t tell from all the things I have been making lately with these colors.



#14 – Spinners.   Precut Used = 10″ squares

DSC_0063 adj 600


This is probably my favorite runner from the book.  It combines hexagons with 60-degree triangles, so two of my favorite shapes in one block.  (Have I mentioned that Carter likes shapes too?  and that Hexagon and Zig Zag are some of his favorites?  Yeah – you can tell he is spending a little time in my sewing room, can’t you?)


DSC_0006 adj


Despite looking difficult, this block isn’t too bad.  Each block only has 13 pieces.  That is only a few more than a simple 9-patch block and isn’t this block so much more interesting than a 9-patch?  Also, none of the seams are set in.  I have an easy technique to avoid such evil things.


DSC_0064 adj


Lastly, #15 – the Topper Variation of the Spinners pattern.  The perfect way to give the block a try.

DSC_0336 adj 600


Wow!  That was a lot of photos to make it through.  For those of you who are still here, I will give away a couple more books from this post.  Just leave a comment to be entered to win.  Like last time, I would be interested to know which is your fav

Thanks for playing along!

Hugs to Carter…what a little scene-stealer!

    Wow – Spinners is my favorite, I think. They are all very cool designs and I would like to make them all!

  25. Debbie says:

    I love Spinners, but Venetian Tiles is way cool and know it is one my kids would like.

    Ok, Heather…….you “got me” with the Nordic Stars!!!!!! Just placed the order and am excited to get started on those awesome projects. I think each will find a home in my family (for birthday gifts needed in the coming months!!!!! Yay!!!). Happy Dance (table topper) is a fave with the “paisley” quilting in the background…….a “go-to” motif for me! And you were so right…..I WAS looking at those sweeties……how could I not, with all those frosted smiles!!! I remember when my men (now 47 and 44) were photographed looking just like that……sigh…………BUT, now it’s the great grands (AND they’re girls!!!!!)……blessings abound! Hugs to you and blessings to your family, from S.E. MN, Doreen

  139. Polly Blank says:

    As a “seasoned” Mom, let me tell you about the good quilting is giving your children. I have always used my kids to check my block placement and they could always find the one that was turned sideways. A further confirmation of the good, my 2nd son was picked to take an IQ test when he was in 5th grade from a Grad student helping in his class. He aced the part of the test of using building blocks to match pictures in a timed test. Many of the pictures he had to match looked just like quilt blocks. The Grad student had never seen anyone do the test so fast. I told her that he had been my quilt checker and it was just a regular activity for him. Then there is the artistic part of using color that helped them in art classes. My oldest son just told me that the things I did when he was growing up like reading became important to him because I liked it. Who knew he was really watching and absorbing. Have fun raising your kids. It goes by FAST.

  140. Linda Weinhandl says:

    I want to make all of them but Spinners would be my first pick, it is so cute! Thanks for the online Market Tour.

  144. Di says:

    Love all the toppers and can’t pick a favorite. Can’t wait to get the book and start sewing. Right now I’m making Spin Cycle from your Angles with Ease. I’m using just three blocks with red, white and blue material to make a topper. Have great weekend.

    Nordic stars hands down is my favorite! Love it! Congrats on the new book!

    Love the Spinners table runner and topper; Nordic Stars is a close 2nd. The photos of the kids are cute, cute, cute!

  183. Marlene says:

    All of the runners are great, however I do believe my favorite is ‘Spinners’ ~ very unique & yes it does look as though it is spinning. Great photos with the children as your ‘moving objects’.

  184. Michelle C says:

    I am like the others — a big fan of Spinners. I love all the table toppers!!

    They are all wonderful, but I really like Happy Dance the best. I especially like using all the different colors….it reminds me of a flower!

  192. Carol Broughton says:

    Wow! They are all stunning! Your photos, use of color and quilting are just divine! I will pick Spinners as my favorite if I can just pick one.

  193. Spinners is my favorite! Great ideas and patterns again.

  194. Carole Lee Criddle says:

    I love the Spinners runner and topper. Your color choices are just great, I love aqua with nearly any other color.

  195. Janet Adair says:

    Divine is my choice.

  196. Rita Lo says:

    I just got a Jaybird Hex n more ruler and I can see myself making Spinners and Happy dance with it. Love your patterns.

  197. Sue says:

    Love all the runners and the colours are so fresh! Lovely.

  198. Jane says:

    I like the Venetian tile runner. The color combo and the pattern make it very unique. Just wanted to reply to your comment about making choices when your kids are young. I congratulate you on an excellent decision to make Carter your top priority. Decisions like this don’t get any easier as they get older. Unless you commit yourself to putting them first now. I have 13, 15 and 18… a graduate, a new driver and a sports minded boy; all in band, plays and other activities that fill the calendar. Never regret giving up “your thing” for your kids thing. I think it is so sad when a kid is performing or competing or being awarded and there is no parent to cheer him/her on. You have plenty of time after they are gone to pursue your interests/career. Be there for them. They are only with you for a little while. And they will remember.

    Oh, i do love them, but i think Spinners is my favorite. Thanks for the hiveaway

  201. I love the last centerpiece… the quilting you have done on each piece really makes them special. I think I’m going to have to learn free motion on my old Pfaff 7570! Packing up the sewing machine now and heading for Quality Sewing!

  202. I really like your design and choice of colors. You have good eyes for colors and your kids are so cute and adorable. Thanks for sharing your ideas and hope to see more of your beautiful stuff.

  203. I loved Spinners! I am drawn to Stars and that’s what I first saw when I looked at the table runner.

  204. Lorna Alexander says:

    Oh my gosh, I can’t pick a favorite! I want them all! Unlike some books that you love one or two, these are all winners!

  205. Janice says:

    Love all these, hard to pick just one

  206. Ginger L Linkel says:

    Hi. I really don’t want the whole book. Can I order just the spinner pattern separately?

  207. bubbieof6 says:

    I live your work. How can I get the pattern for the 6 pointed star topper? Thank you.
