No piecing required for this oh so easy project! The southwest table runner uses 5 layers of fabric. You pin the layers together, mark the grid pattern, sew and then carefully cut the layers to make the pattern.
Each of the squares in this unique project is created by cutting away the top layers of fabric to reveal the underlying fabric. It's like when you were a little kid and took lots of different colored crayons and covered a page with color. Then you took the black crayon and covered over the colors. The really fun part was scratching out the black to make a picture from the hidden colors underneath.
Now that we are grownups, we have a fancy name for this process, reverse applique, but the fun is the same. The binding is a shortcut method where the edges are sewn all around and then clipped to ruffle at the edges.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions with photos. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
