Using the challenge fabric from the 2014 Pine Needlers Fabric Challenge, (the results of which will be displayed at the annual Blackberry Jam Quilt Show in July), Virginia G. made this fabulous table runner. The challenge fabric is the paisley fabric, and Virginia added the cream and the red fabrics in with great results. I knew she was going to use it as a counter top quilt for potlucks (it’s 82″ long!) so I decided it would look good with some fairly tight quilting, throwing in some straight lines to offset the whimsical paisley quilting. Yep, paisley quilting to go with the paisley fabric! It just keeps getting better and better…..doesn’t it?
Challenge yourself and made a table runner today! Happy quilting!
My very own show! Our Sewing Room in Springfield has a selection of my quilts on show. Some are old, some are new, one is borrowed (because it’s a collaboration) and one is blue (no really!). The quilts will tell you a little bit about me: yep, I get bored easily! They are all different styles and patterns and range from old-fashioned to modern. I guess I just like to try different things.
The only quilts that are repeats are my Garden Gradation quilt which I made in three different colorways; two florals and one modern polka-dots…..just because I wanted to see how it would look.
So if you are in the Springfield area, stop by Our Sewing Room and check out the show! I will be there for Springfield’s 2nd Friday Artwalk on June 13, 2014 from 5-7 pm. I will hope to see you there!
