My niece loves cats so I decided to use the Churn Dash quilt pattern as the foundation of this quilt for my niece Kelly - thank you Jenny Doan, I couldn’t have done it without you! I free motion quilted it myself, painstakingly drawing the designs using templates and good ole friction pens (love them) - my first ever! Although not perfect,I think it turned out beautifully and she loved it! I do too. I appliqued the cats, another first for me.
This table runner was created after watching MSQC tutorial Christmas Tree Table runner, using the half hexigon template. 10 inch squares were used from Under the Pines Favorites 10 Karat Crystals by Color Bakery for Wilmington Prints. The table runner is reversible, and the reverse side is the MSQC tutorial pattern of Turnabout Granny Squares. I used scrappy fabrics from my stash for the reverse side.
I've been using up my scraps left over from other quilts and projects. This table runner was made up with left over pieces of my children's college themed quilts, and now makes a great table decoration for their home as they are devoted alumni. It is adapted from the tutorial "Turnabout Granny Squares Quilt" by Jenny. The reverse side is the "Hexigon Pumpkin Table Runner" pattern from the tutorial by Jenny and Missouri Star Quilt Company, also created from scraps. My scrap pile is diminishing, slowly!
