Forgotten Finish: WanderLust

I finished binding my WanderLust wall hanging/table runner a few weeks ago but forgot to post about it, probably because I hadn’t decided on the best way to display it. I wanted to hang it in the master bath but it seemed a bit short for the space using a sleeve and the existing rod.

My solution: adding some grosgrain ribbon ties to the top so I could hang it from the rod, thereby adding a few more inches to the length:

I’m really enjoying the motion of the spinning blocks and the contrast of the deep navy background against the pale grey of the wall.

If you’re thinking those blocks looks a lot like the ones in Stella by Starlight, the quilt I just finished (subject of my previous post), you’re right on the mark. They’re made from the same block: Spinners by Heather Peterson of Anka’s Treasures.

WanderLust finishes at 20″ x 53″ (not counting the grosgrain ribbon ties).  Regular readers may remember this is the second quilt named WanderLust I made this year. The other version is a king-size bed runner. You can see both versions here.

I’m working on a post about all of my finished projects in 2016. With only five days remaining in the year, this one needed to be squeezed in.

    Terrific outcome! I think the addition of grosgrain ribbon adds interest along with length. Nicely done!
