Today I had the privilege of quilting this wonderful table runner. In the midst of quilting larger quilts, quilting something smaller is refreshing. The first thing I liked about the runner are the wedge shapes, straight lines and circles. The fabrics included some tone on tones, some text, and some small prints.
I kept all of these things in mind, as I looked for a quilting design. I found this design, by Cyndi Herrman which came with my Statler Stitcher, called ‘Circles and Lines’:
On the quilt top the mock-up shows the circles and the straight lines of the quilting design, but I wasn’t sure that I liked it. Next, I adjusted the design slightly keeping straight lines and circles, but changing the regular straight lines to create more wedge-like shapes.
I felt like this design complimented the top and gave the quilt design more movement. I chose a light gray color thread which blended into the fabrics and the following is the result:
The quilting provides texture to the top and accents the design.
Have a quilty day!!!
