Quilting Quickly II: Patterns, Techniques & Tips »
Type of item: Home Decor
Farmer's Market by RJR Fabric Charm Pack, The Purple Thang (for shaping points), Heirloom Batting, Bleached Muslin for backing
What was your inspiration?
After several weeks of working on large bed quilts that take weeks to complete, I needed a project that I could enjoy and that could be completed in a day. I had admired this pattern when I first purchased the course and hoped to make it someday--that day was today. This table runner is a donation for an charity auction.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of taking the time to practice getting the seams nestled in each other and getting to use "The Purple Thang" for the first time. It was a gift from Missouri Star Quilt Company during the 12 days of Christmas. It makes the pointiest points! Also, I was very relaxed as I stitched in the ditch and am pleased with how straight they turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Find a charm pack that you love and go for it! You can do it.
