My small group buddies and I had so much fun making Spiral Table Runners a few weeks ago at Decherd Needleworks Shop.  One of the gals in our group led us through the steps. 
 The first step was selecting fabrics; cutting them; and then assembling them into strata.

From the strata we used the Ten Degree Wedge Ruler put out by Phillips Fiber Company and cut our wedges.  We assembled them in the correct order as per the instructions.

This is the first side cut.  Then the second side was cut and we reversed the direction. 

Laying it out on a large surface made it easy to keep the arrangement straight and in order.  Now it is ready to sew.  The sewing was so easy.

                                     Here it is finished. 

I would like to do some more of these for gifts.  I want to try doing one without binding by using the pillow case turn technique and then quilting it.

For now this one is on display at my local quilt shop with several of my other quilts as quilt artist of the month.  When I bring it home I will proudly put it on my table.

This was such a fun, easy project that packs a lot of punch!
