My Positive Thoughts Table Runner is featured in the Modern Patchwork Spring 2015 issue and I am thrilled! I love this publication and I'm honored to have my pattern included within it.
Nestled among a number of great projects provided by some of my favorite quilters, a full page photo, comprehensive instructions and supporting graphics are provided for my table runner so that you can make one of your own.
The table runner, which can double as a wall hanging, measures 15'' x 75'' and is strip cut and machine pieced and quilted. Five colorful "plus" blocks are included on the front while the back is a bit more subdued with three simple accent stripes. Either side can be used.
I like the "banner" appearance of the runner when it is hung it vertically. It makes a nice addition to my porch.
I used a white, high sheen quilting thread in an overall grid pattern. All of the quilting was done on my domestic machine. A few more close ups follow that show more of the quilting detail.
If you'd like to make your own Positive Thoughts table runner, be sure to pick up a copy of Modern Patchwork's Spring 2015 issue to get the pattern. This issue has 27 great projects to make and a number of interesting articles that shouldn't be missed.
