Comfort and JOY begins with Mary and her Nine Degree Ruler...Gotta Have It? or Make It Stop? pssst Jacque below ....we have 2 guests tuts today!

First I would like to thank Madame Samm for the invitation to share with you today.  

++++++
Are you thinking I just can't buy any more quilting tools?  
 That's what I thought before I saw what fun I could have with the 9 degree Circle Wedge Ruler I was going to share the tree skirt I made out of Roman Holiday wovens:


But then I decided the Spicy Spiral Table Runner by School House Quilts would be more fun to show you!

To start with you need:
Spicy Spiral Table Runner pattern
8 fat quarters plus two for binding
9 degree ruler
1 yard of backing
batting
These are the 10 fat quarters I already had.  They are mostly from the Crazy Eight line by Sandy Gervais.

You need to choose two of those fat quarters for bias binding and it works best if one is dark and one is light.  
I chose the polka dots and cut 2 1/4" bias strips of approximately 35" from each:


Next you need to lay out the remaining eight fat quarters from lightest to darkest and cut four strips of each in the width indicated in the pattern:


Those strips are sew into four strip sets all in the color order you chose.  You can make a swatch list to make sure you keep them in the right order.

Next you CAREFULLY cut wedges from the strip sets which are in a double layer using the numbers on the ruler and the chart in the pattern:


You need to carefully stack your cut wedges in the order indicated and check each one off on the chart in the pattern.


You will have one dark set and on light set.  Sew the smallest wedge of each color to the next smallest wedge matching the top edge:


As shown, chain stitching works perfectly for this step.

Keep your stack of wedges in order while you continue to add the next largest size wedge of the light color/dark color to your chain pieced sections.


And it grows and grows.....


When all the light wedges are sewn together and all the dark wedges are sewn together, you will press the seams toward the largest wedge on each section.
Then sew the two sections together matching the largest wedge of each.


And now you have this:


Now you will need to trim to make an even curved edge:


Next sandwich the top, batting and backing together, baste and quilt.
I simply sewing a curve through each like fabric piece using either ivory or red thread.

And lastly add the dark bias binding to the dark areas and the light binding to the light areas, joining them with a bias seam.

And here is the completed Spicy Spiral Table Runner:


This pattern is very addicting and you will want to make LOTS of them - for gifts and maybe even one for yourself!

Thanks for sharing some time learning about the nine degree ruler options.

Stop by my blog Mary on Lake Pulaski and see what else I'm up to!
