ALYoF 2015 Goal for May Achieved - Bubbles

My ALYoF goal for May is achieved, see goal post here.

The design of the runner comes from Fat Quarter Shop, and it is called Mini Charm Mix. I didn't use a mini charm pack for my project, all my squares and rectangles are cut from yardage and scraps.

I am very pleased with the color selection of the table runner, a cool palette. It reminds me of the ocean on a nice summer day.

The quilting is a combination of straight line with the walking foot lengthwise, and FMQ on diagonal(ish) lines with circles of varying sizes incorporated. With these circles the name of my runner stood out clear for me: Bubbles!

The backing is an old print from Ikea. In my mind the blue and white fabric looks like Dutch porcelain; perfect for a backing!

This is another stash buster of mine, all the fabrics come from my stash. The binding is a teal solid.

  4. I just recently saw this same pattern when I was looking for a table runner pattern for mini charms. I didn't have enough mini charms so I chose a different pattern. Seeing yours now makes me want to make one, though. I love the colors!
