Crossroads Table Runner

I do occasionally finish something! This is a tablerunner made from charm squares which I gave to my sister for her birthday this week.



The charm squares were from Blackbird Designs Nell's Flower Shop range. I'm not so keen on the orange but a small amount is okay!



I found the backing and binding fabric in my stash - it is from the Porch Swing range by Brannock and Patek.



The pattern is called Crossroads Table Runner and it is from this book, Charmed and Dangerous by Heather Mulder Thompson.



After watching Deborah Louie's Machine Quilting DVD which came with an issue of Australian Quilter's Companion, I finished the table runner with simple quilting in the ditch and through the larger squares.



Until next time,

  11. The tablerunner is lovely. I've also used a fair bit of the Porch Swing range - was a favourite for quite a while. Have been lucky enough to attend a day's workshop with Deborah Louie - she's fantastic.

  23. Hi Christine,
    This is my first time posting so I'm not sure what I am doing. I have a selfish request, I need some of the fabric that you put on the back of your crossroads table runner. It has been in my stash for 5 years or so because I wasn't sure how to use it, now that I have a plan, I don't have quite enough. Do you happen to have anymore of it? I'll pay you or trade you, whatever you want. I need 1/2 a yard at least, 1 yard would be great. If you can help me, here is my email address amazingrace105@sbcglobal.net Thanks, Theresa
