One Hour Table Runner

Laura S. sent these great photos in of the One Hour Table Runner she made! She said: “This was my first attempt at anything like this, but I enjoyed using the pattern I found, and thought I would share my finished project. I have primarily sew garments before this, so this was very different than anything I have ever done.”

And may I say, great job Laura! It’s so fun to see what is made with my patterns. This one came from a period of collaboration between Sheila Sinclair Snyder and myself. We were trying to come up with fun, easy, quick patterns that had a bold and dramatic impact. So thanks for sending these Laura!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! And if you want to send in photos of a quilt you’ve made from one of my patterns, please do! I will (of course) brag about it in some fashion on my website!

Happy quilting!


Challenge Fabric Table Runner

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!
