I have a lot of projects happening right now but I am super happy to have this Spring table runner finished and on my table!It was put on hold because I ran out of thread while quilting it. I made a point to pick some up at QuiltCon last month and finally put my Trinket Quilt (which you can see here…Trinket Progess) aside to finish up a few things. This table runner was toward the top of that list. I only had two small areas left to quilt before I went looking for a good binding fabric.This particular choice was something I had picked out before I ran out of thread and had put aside, but in view, for when I was ready to bind. I starting trying to decide what fabric I should use when my eye fell on this one and I was so pleased with my forethought as this piece is perfect!
Now let’s talk about the quilting for a second. This is the back of one block and I love how it turned out with this variegated Aurifil thread that I used for the appliqué and I had to use that same design throughout the piece which I was able to do using my walking foot.I love the happy feeling of this runner. I got the pattern inspiration from the Quilt Block Cookbook by Amy Gibson. I used the Petal unit for the center and combined it with the Plus One Block. There are so many different combos that you can create using this book and Amy makes it so easy to do so.
The Blueberry Park fabric fulfills my need for happy spring and summer colors. I had the backing fabric in my stash and it pulled it all together beautifully.I love this runner! What happy spring projects are you working on?
