It has been a little bit of time since I returned from my retreat. I worked on three projects that you will see in the coming weeks. This project was a fast, fun little project that I decided to bring along.
I may be one of the only quilters I know who never made a Yellow Brick Road quilt, therefore, I decided it was time. Now, working in a quilt store for many years, I helped people with this quilt all the time. I never was drawn to it as a pattern, but I love it as a table runner. It is perfect for the leftover bits from a larger quilt!
The fabric I choose was from the Farm Fresh by Gingiber. I loved this fabric but didn’t have a lot left in the 10″ squares. I decided to proceed with a selection that I liked.
It went together really quickly. My only difficulty was not having the variety of fabrics I should have. I really only had 8 rather than the 15 required. It works, and, the more I look at it the more I like.
Before I left for the retreat, I had a small quilt sandwich on my HandiQuilt Simply Sixteen. I went back and forth, but in the end I decided to take the few test stitches out on the piece, remove the top piece and add the tablerunner onto the sandwich. The back had greys and teals that went really well with the front.
I used a new pattern that reminded me of chicken wire. It is called Vintage Singer E2E from Christy Dillon.
For the quilting threads, I used the Glide Warm Grey on top, which is a pretty creamy color, and the Decobob Grey on the bottom. It quilted in no time.
The binding was from a recent finish; you will see the top and maybe the quilt before the end of the month. It was perfect with the front and the back.
