Peaks and Valleys Table Runner

The last thing I made for Market was this super fun Peaks and Valleys Table Runner.



I was so excited when the gals at Camelot Fabrics asked if I would make a sample of this for the booth because I loved designing the pattern (yes, free pattern right here) month's ago and it has been on my "to-do" list ever since.   And of course, it got bumped up the list when it had a deadline attached ;)


The fabrics in this runner are from the Zoey Collection for Camelot Fabrics.  I loved the beautiful colors and pulled from them when it came time to quilt it.


I decided to do some super fun matchstick quilting, but as a new  twist I hadn't tried, I added color!!  I started by randomly quilting 10-12 lines all across the runner in each of the 6-7 colors I pulled from the line.  Then I went back and filled in all of the blank space with a beautiful blender.   And I have to say, I am so loving how it turned out.  I will be doing this again soon.



And here it is hanging in the Camelot Booth at Market.    So fun!!!


And that is my Peaks and Valleys Table Runner ;)  Like I mentioned, if you want to make your own runner, you can download the free pattern right here ;)   And if you do make one, I would love to see it.  You can email me a picture at happquiltingmelissa@gmail.com or add it to my Flickr group here ;)


And that's it for today ;)   I will be back on Monday with more from Market :)
Pin It!
