I couldn’t wait to make “Signs of Autumn” Table Runner made with www.studio180design.net Wing Clipper I and Corner Beam tools. I loved the fabrics, the colors were just falling out of my stash. There were the blues, the oranges, the purples… I found the border at after I made the center, and it was perfect incorporating all the colors.
This was a fairly quick project, because with the Wing Clipper tool you make four Flying Geese units at a time. You make them a little larger than they need to be and then trim them down to a perfect size.
When I made the stems of the leaves I sewed on a bias strip, that I had folded in half. I folded it over again, and hand stitched it down on the opposite side. This method gave me complete control of placement, and a neat looking stem.
Can’t wait to quilt it. My favorite part.

I love everything about quilting. I love the colors, the feel of the fabrics, the piecing, the quilting , and even putting on the binding! I free motion quilt using a Bernina 780, longarm quilt (free motion or ruler work), on a Prodigy , and hand quilt when I get a chance.
I have been teaching quilting since 2004, and became a Certified Studio 180 Design Instructor in 2013. In 2020 I became an Island Batik Ambassador, and an Island Batik Designer in 2021. I teach locally at Bernina Connection, in Tallahassee, and travel to guilds and shops to share my love of quilting through a trunk show or workshops, and I also vend at several Quilt Shows in the area.
