Table Runners

I seem to be addicted to making table runners! I made another modern maples. This time for my mum. I love this block and definitely want to make a quilt with it.
I love this. I think it is the first time I have sewn with Art Gallery fabrics. They are beautiful fabrics with a different feel to them. I also am a fan of Pat Bravo now. The runner is a test for the cross quilt I want to make. The colours do not look nearly as good in the picture as they do in real life. I only had 4 fat quarters of the Pat Bravo fabric which I bought at the last quilt show. I am not big on pretty fabrics for me to use, as much as I admire the things that others make with them but I loved this bundle. I will be checking out Art Gallery and Pat Bravo fabrics from now on. The pattern is from Fairy face designs and Ellison Lane quilts and is an old one. It is the across the sea quilt along which I have wanted to do for a while. It includes instructions for cutting from a layer cake so I can buy a layer cake of horizon by Kate Spain and make a quilt for ME.
