Table runners are such fun projects to do. I love the smaller scale of the project and doing things that have a seasonal feeling or specific color theme. When I heard Doug Leko was releasing his Tabletastic 3 book, I knew it was a good time to have a little fun with my upcoming Pansy's Posies fabric in rich purples.
With large florals, I often like some larger panels in quilts to show them off. I felt like this Mansfield runner did exactly that by having the larger rectangle spaces and sections divided almost like windows and window panes. I played around with placement on the smaller blocks by mixing them but decided I liked the order of two similar fabrics together. This runner finishes at 17 x 49".
The pantograph I used to longarm this runner is called "Groove" and is from Jess Zeigler at Longarm League. I love the gentle curves and retro-modern feel this texture has. I kept my binding the same color as the sashings since they already seemed to have a structured feel to the whole piece.
The fabric I used is Pansy's Posies which should be shipping in Oct/Nov 2022. The sashings are made from Bella Solids Prune. This pattern went together easily and was fun to make. It was just hard to pick which one of all the great designs from Doug's book to make. And speaking of Doug's book...he has some to give away! So if you would like to enter to win a free copy of Tabletastic 3, head over to my instagram page https://www.instagram.com/robinpickens/ and enter on my post.
