During the process of writing the Trendy Table book and having the projects tested, I end up with several samples of each pattern. The original set from the book is out traveling from quilt shop to quilt shop. I had to hurry and finish the second set so they could head out on their quilt shop route as well. Today I wanted to share a couple of the runners from that second set. I will start with a couple of the Christmas options – because all the beautiful Christmas fabrics have been hitting the stores and you might “need” some!
Pattern Names: Wrapped and Frosted
Wrapped – The runner that made it into the book doesn’t look that much different, it just uses more current fabric and I really try to use the most current fabric I can find so people can replicate the look.
Here’s a close up of the second one again. It uses several prints from Basic Grey’s past fabric lines, long with a few basics from my stash. The grey print with the red cardinals is another Moda designer – Kate and Birdie I think.
I would also love to see this one done up in bright birthday prints. It would be fun to have out on the table for parties . . . . and we are celebrating Carter’s 4th birthday this weekend, but I have not had time to get it done. (Plus, I did a search for birthday fabrics and I don’t see any currently on the market)
The second quilt from the photos the Frosted pattern.
It really looks different from the original – The black background is so dramatic. The photo in the book shows it with an aqua background.
Lastly, I have the Starburst runner. The original version from the book uses prints from my stash.
I had it tested in Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille.
