Marni’s Table Runner: Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along

Table runner materials 1

Hi! I’m Marni from Haberdashery Fun. I’m happy to be here today sharing my Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along project.

I’ve wanted to be a part of a quilt along for quite some time. I have been sewing for more than 15 years, but quilting for fewer than 5. I love when an opportunity arises to stretch myself and quilting abilities. I jumped at the chance when Lindsay announced her quilt along to celebrate the release of her new book Modern Bee. You really must check out her book – I devoured my copy in one evening! The book is a wealth of information on quilting and starting/belonging to a bee. The blocks are wonderful and the visuals truly amazing!

I wasn’t sure what to make and finally decided on a table runner. I went back and forth between a pillow, laptop sleeve and table runner. As soon as the first block was made I knew it had to be a table runner.

I bought a charm pack called “Sphere” from Moda Fabrics. I love the modern feel and bright, fresh colors. When anchored with the light grey, the colors really pop out.  For my table runner I created 4 blocks. I only used 12 of the 5″ squares that came in the charm pack, so I have enough left over for another project.

I wanted to lengthen the runner and also break up the pattern, so I added 1″ navy sashing between the blocks. I chose to quilt the top with a linear, yet organic feel. The finished length is 45″, so it fits a table perfectly and doesn’t overwhelm the space. I’m super happy with it, but knew we had a hit when my husband told me how wonderful it looked! Sometimes there is only silence after a project is unveiled.

Thank you for having me Lindsay! Congrats on a wonderful book. I’m beyond inspired and ready to start on my next block and project!! Maybe a table runner a month for 2014.
