Bonus Table Runner Project


Next Wednesday, March 15th, will officially mark the release of my Tiptoe Through The Tulips pattern, and I couldn't be more excited! To say that this is a large block would be quite the understatement finishing at 24"... yeah, I know that's BIG! I think that sometimes working with such oversized blocks can really give a more modern feel as opposed to a standard 6" or 12" block. With that in mind, I wanted to include an additional project in the pattern for those that would prefer a smaller project rather than a twin or king size quilt. After playing around with it a bit, I was able to come up with this sweet table runner, using the same units found in the pattern, which would be perfect for any spring time table setting.


Spring is my favorite season, and tulips, daffodils, crocus', snowdrops, snowflakes, grape hyacyniths, and spring bulbs are among my favorite blooms. Who doesn't get excited at those first buds peeking through the earth?


I opted to finish this project again with a swirl quilting. I have to say that I enjoyed it so much that I kind of have a feeling that you will be seeing it again... not to mention that there is a world of difference when quilting with my new machine!  
 

If you haven't had a chance to peek in on things, be sure to check out what my pattern testers are making on Instagram with this block... I can't wait to see more! The countdown has officially started... just one more week!
