New Quilt Pattern: Charming Breezes

Introducing a fresh new pattern in my shop - Charming Breezes. All you need is a charm pack/stacker/precut 5" squares, an itty bit of background fabric, and a little bit of your favorite coordinating print for the borders.

The Charming Breezes quilt pattern gives three different table runner sizes - 14" x 40", 14" x 60", and 
14" x 80" (and you can always make any size in between : )

Aren't these fabric prints gorgeous?! The fabric line featured here is Autumn Fields from StudioRK for Robert Kaufman. I had a specific person in mind to gift when I first laid eyes on these fabrics, but then, as it would happen, I ended up making two of these quilted runners because someone in my household absolutely needed one on our table as well : )

This is such a quick little table runner to make up that I had both runners made up in a couple afternoons' time. No biggie : )

 Autumn Fields is one of those fabric lines that has completely taken me by surprise. While at first I did like it, after making with it and seeing it in Charming Breezes, ah! so lovely, especially with the gold thread accents and pumpkins and gourds peaking out and the greens and browns! 

Yes, like has changed to love : )

Wasn't sure how to quilt this tablerunner. It was on my mind the entire time I was piecing - how would a diagonal grid quilting look?

As it would turn out, the diagonal 1" grid quilting looks so good on this table runner quilt. 
Before quilting with my walking foot, I used a Hera maker (I think that's what it is called) and marked 1"-spaced lines on a 45-degree angle. Then with walking foot engaged, quilted using a stitch-in-the-ditch pressure foot.


This quilted little table runner also makes a lovely quilt roll!

 Happy quilting, everyone : )
