Bon Bon table runner

I've finished my Bon Bon table runner and I'm very happy with it.

The colours in the Alison Glass fabrics work really well with my dining room chairs.

The three feature Bon Bon blocks are hand pieced, using acrylic templates purchased from Jen Kingwell's shop, Amitie Textiles.  You can read my earlier WIP post here for more details.

I wanted the table runner to fit nicely on the bookcase in the dining room, so I padded it out with some filler blocks.

I also wanted it to be quite flat so we could stand things on it, so I machine quilted it with a curved ribbon design from Jacquie Gering's book, Walk.  It's a great book to have on hand when you're wondering how to quilt something with your walking foot.

I used Aurifil 50wt in a mustard colour.

So, I got to use the Bon Bon templates, and I have something useful for my home. Win, win!

What's everyone else up to this weekend?

Oh I love a bit of Alison Glass and that’s a wonderful combination of fabrics and colours. I like the purple border too and the bright binding sets it all off beautifully. It’s a lovely runner Wendy, you made a great job of it.

What a beautiful table runner. I like the design and I really love the quilting. I was admiring it all the way to the end. The runner looks lovely on both the table and the bookshelf.

Beautiful table runner! It was like she designed the fabrics with your chairs in mind!! Your blocks are beautiful and look difficult to produce and your quilting on it is perfect!
