New pattern

I've been working on a new design/pattern for a class I'll be teaching on April 28th.  It will be a table runner in the style of a tile quilt.  I've been inspired by the book Quilt Tile Revival to try something new.  Since applique is not my strong suit, mostly because I shy away from it, I thought this would be a good chance to get some practice in. 

As you can see, the fabrics I'm using for this particular runner are a tad outspoken.  I love the 4-petaled shape in the right lower corner that was fussy cut from a rose.  The block designs are paisley and other related free-flowing type shapes.  I'm still trying to think of a name for the runner.  I should have it all appliqued and the border added by this Thursday (the 14th) when we have a sewing night. 


  1. That is so colorful! I can't wait to see the end result.

  2. what's wrong with outspoken fabric colors? looks good! can't wait for the class!
