New Quilt Pattern: Zippity Zip - Just a Charm Pack Table Runner

As far as quick quilt patterns, it doesn't get any quicker than Zippity Zip - Just a Charm Pack Table Runner quilt pattern. You literally just need a charm pack or stacker of 5" precut squares to finish this quilt top.

This version of the Zippity Zip table runner quilt pattern features Fall's in Town by Sandy Gervais for Riley Blake Designs. It is full of gorgeous fall colors and whimsical prints. 

That chocolate brown floral print is a favorite.

This little quilted table runner seemed to be calling for some movement inspired by fall breezes so I quilted it with wavy lines using my walking foot. 

My wavy line quilting is done very organically and varies as it moves across the table runner. 
I get the gentle waves by just slightly turning my quilt off square just a bit back and forth. It is very easy to get into a rhythm.

Zippity Zip - Just a Charm Pack Table Runner quilt pattern includes instructions for three sizes
13" x 41"
13" x 59"
13" x 81"
Or, you can make any size by using more or fewer charm squares.

The key to pulling off the pattern in Zippity Zip is separating lights and darks.

Although the lights I chose to use as the "background" pieces in this quilted table runner are a bit busier than the "background" pieces I used in the Midnight Clear version of Zippity Zip, you can see there is still plenty of contrast to pull off the simple yet striking design of Zippity Zip.

Using up a charm pack of precut 5" squares doesn't need to be laborious or time intensive. Zippity Zip is the perfect example a very fast little table runner to quilt up.

It's so easy and quick to add some charm to your home with the Zippity Zip - Just a Charm Pack Table Runner quilt pattern. 

Happy quilting, everyone : )
