Charming Ripples Quilt Pattern - American Dream

When I say the Charming Ripples  quilt pattern is a quick finish, I mean it is a really quick finish. I wanted to gift a quilted table runner before the 4th, and it happened!

Cut on Monday evening (two from one charm pack - and the white bits were cut from scraps)
Pieced and quilted on Tuesday
Bound and shipped on Wednesday.
Received on Saturday. Yeah! Just in time for July 4th.

The first version of this quilted tablerunner is quilted with all straight-line quilting. 

The second quilt runner I made from the same charm pack/5" squares stack of American Dream from Riley Blake Designs I changed the straight line quilting up a bit and added in some decorative stitch quilting. 

Love it! Simple, unique deco quilting touch that also keeps the seams down nice and flat.

Nearly identical yet unique these quilted table runners were a fun summer sew and add richness and warmth to the table. 

American Dream has a great mix of prints - plaids, florals, and geometrics. Combined with the awesome patriotic colors, these prints make for an awesome scrappy patchwork quilt.

Isn't the little floral print darling? I definitely had to add some of the white print to my stash of little prints on white. Not sure what I'm going to do with this little collection, but someday I'll know.

Cute little quilt roll. 

Happy quilting, everyone : )
