table runner for andrea and doris

When Andrea came to visit us this summer, she had brought some fabrics with her to sew a pillow cover for her sofa. There was enough material left over to make a table runner. I came over this pattern for a table runner and coasters by Laura Jane Taylor called ModernGeometrics and I really liked it.

I made 8 blocks with flying geese as in the pattern but at the end I went for a different layout of the blocks. Once more I quilted this table runner in straight lines following the pattern with the walking foot.

The other table runner I made is for my sister-in-law. She likes bright colors and this table runner brings colour on her kitchen table. I have used a variety of Kaffe Fassett fabrics from my stash. To cut the fabrics I have finally made use of the Hex N More ruler from Jaybird Quilts. The pattern is like Tiny Dancer, but to finish each block I have used two different fabric patterns.

It was a pleasure to piece this table runner, all seams came well together and have matching points. This time I decided to get out the quilting foot and practice some free-motion quilting.

    Nice to hear something from you Barbora! I love your “Tablerunner for Doris”… it looks so fresh and friendly with its Kaffee Fasset fabrics. The quilting is great!

      Thanks for stopping Annett, I was on “quilting holidays” for some time! I do like the KF fabrics – love the colors and design.

    Very effective variety in backgrounds to the flying geese–varying backgrounds is something I have trouble doing well. Nice to see it when it works.

      Thank you! Even though I used only 4 different fabrics and the pink background for the table runner, it took me some time to decide on the fabric combinations and block distribution. I am happy you like it!
