Watermelon Whimsy Table Runner

Hi there! I am super excited to share my newest pattern with you guys!!  I have had so much fun creating this pattern.  I have a love for all things watermelon right now - and this table runner is perfect for your summer table! 

21.5" x 46.5"
Watermelon Whimsy Kit

This pattern is a mixture of piecing and raw-edge appliqué.  I don't share a ton of appliqué patterns - but I LOVE appliqué.  It is so easy and you can really change up the look of the final product by how you stitch your appliqué on.  I love to do some messy sketch stitching on my appliqué pieces - I love the scrappy/primitive look.  The other thing I love so much about stitching my appliqué on this way - is that you don't have to be perfect! That's the point!  No super straight lines here! Just a lot of fun stitching to give your runner some character! 

For my quilting - I did a meandering pattern on the background.  I left the black border alone, and then did some meandering on the red gingham border.   The binding is the black swiss dot - which I think just finishes the table runner off nicely!    

We have kits available for this and it INCLUDES THE BACKING AND BINDING!  So pick up a kit and you will have EVERYTHING you need to make this sweet project!

Happy Day Table Runner {Free Pattern}

Hi there! I am so excited to be apart of the Riley Blake Happy Day Blog tour!  I am LOVING this fabric by Lori Whitlock.  She did an amazing job designing this line - it is so bright and cheery!  I can't get enough of it! 

I thought I would design a new table runner pattern for this fabric.  You guys know how much I love my pinwheels! :)  It was almost necessary to make pinwheels out of this fabric! Pinwheels + Happy Day fabric = LOVE
Happy Day Runner Kit HERE
I decided to do a double pinwheel block, and I love how it turned out! I kept the large pinwheels all the same and then alternated the yellow and blue for the smaller pinwheels. 

I also added a touch or ric-rac to the runner for a little extra cuteness! 

For the back I used my favorite print from the entire collection.  Doesn't this print just make you smile?  I used the red dot print for the binding - which really just finishes it off nicely!

I got a little adventurous with the quilting.  I wanted to try and make the pinwheels pop out - so I did more dense quilting around the pinwheels and in the white of the pinwheels to make this happen.   If you wanted to keep your quilting simple- you could easily just do some straight line quilting! Which would be equally as cute. 

Alright let's get started!  We have kits available - and they include the backing! So pick up a kit and you will have everything you need to make this sweet project!

You can follow the tutorial below - or you can download a printable version HERE!

Hi there! Today I am ready to share my ninth block for the Raspberry and Cream Block of the Month!!

Friday Bundle Batch {Berry Bouquet}

Hi there! I hope you all had a good week! We have a lovely bundle to share with you today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I've made! :) 

This week's bundle showcases the gorgeous Fruta y Flor collection by Verna Mosquera for Free Spirit!  Cottage roses, strawberries, & raspberries.
You'll receive 1 Fat Quarter of each:
  1. Fruta y Flor Cottage Rose Aqua - Free Spirit
  2. Wonderland 2 Gingham White - Riley Blake
  3. Fruta y Flor Strawberry Bouquet Aqua -Free Spirit
  4. Fruta y Flor Strawberry Patch Rose - Free Spirit
  5. Fruta y Flor Wild Raspberries Aqua - Free Spirit
  6. Garden Girl Dot Pink - Riley Blake
  7. Fruta y Flor Berry Patch Aqua - Free Spirit
  8. Just Another Walk In the Woods Ruffles Pink - Moda

I am loving this bundle!  I am smitten with this color combo.  I wanted to recreate a block I used in a table runner I made a while back - but use just one block.   So I resized the block and changed up the star a little bit to make it a 30" block, and I love how it turned out!  So instead of a table runner, I made this fun table topper. 

I really wanted to showcase those lovely prints in this bundle - so that's why I decided to make such a large block.  The pink and aqua together make me happy - plus the dash of red in the prints and the binding I picked is just perfect!

30" x 30"

This is a super quick project, and you could definitely get this done in a day.  I quilted this on my domestic machine with simple loopy-loops.  I think that's my go-to pattern for quilting.  It seems to really work well with a lot of my projects. 

Let's not forget about the backing - I am swooning over this pink dot with flowers! It is the perfect backing for this topper!

Alright, let's get started!


1 Berry Bouquet Fat Quarter Bundle
1/4 yard of white for background
1/3 yard of Happy Day Dots for Binding
