Recently I went in a table runner swap run by Sue (of Quilting Block Swaps Australia). The idea was to make a table runner using a charm square pack. As I had just been to the Adelaide retreat and one of the projects was a table runner made from a charm pack (by the lovely Dawn Hay) I wanted to try that pattern out. My partner was Maria of Life on the Block and this is the gorgeous runner she made for me.
I love the bright colours and the fabrics. It fits my table perfectly.
There were lots of other goodies too... I was very spoilt. How cute is this tea towel? Way too nice to use! The card is gorgeous too. Thanks so much Maria... I love my runner!!!
This is the runner I made for Maria. The pattern is so clever and effective. As you can see we both used lots of lovely bright colours in our runners set off with fresh white.
I really enjoyed making the runner and the beauty of this pattern.....
is the second runner ... yep.... there are 2 different ways of joining the charm squares to make 2 different runners. Very clever.
Hope you have a great weekend!
