I mentioned a couple of blog posts ago that I was working on finishing up a bunch of runners from the new book, “On the Run Again”. I’ve got the photos ready on two more that I will share today.
This one is called Fresh Connection.
It only takes 12 Charm squares, and a little bit of background and contrast fabric. It’s perfect for those random Charms squares that are leftover from previous projects – Or you can get three runners from one Charm back.
The fabric is from Bonnie and Camille’s April Showers fabric line. It’s looks so cheerful on this beautiful summer day! The original runner in the book is below, just to refresh your memory. It would work nicely with many different fabric lines – the key is to make sure that the contrast fabric (shown in red or navy) is a really strong contrast so you don’t lose the pattern.
The second color option today is of the Divine runner.
It works perfectly in my dining room – though I have had to send it off on the trunk show circuit and won’t see it for another 6 months ;-( At least I got to have it out for a week before I had to ship it out.
The fabrics are again from Bonnie and Camille – though this is an older line called Modern Vintage.
This close-up shows the quilting a little bitter. As I was working on it, I was worried I was ruining it, as the quilting wasn’t looking right to me. Somehow it looks much better a few days later!
And a shot of the original from the book –
This runner takes just 16 – 10″ squares and a bit of yardage in cream and grey. This pattern also takes this ruler.
That’s all for today – Click here if you are interested in seeing more from this book. Thanks for stopping by!
