Modern Bed Runner


I was so excited when Yvonne brought me this bed runner and asked for modern quilting on it.  This is the first time a client has asked for modern quilting so I can finally put my online quilting class with Angela Walters to work!  


This quilt pattern is called Shades of Grey and is from Kim Schaefer’s book Skinny Quilts.


I asked Yvonne what fabric collection she use and she said they were a ‘mismatch of fat quarters’….they look so good together I thought they were a collection.   Some are Timeless Treasures and some are from the Remembrance collection by Brannock and Patek.


  I decided to just stitch in the ditch and the do spiral squares in the centers of each square and around the light coloured frames in the center. It was a lot of fun stitching out the spirals and not worrying about them looking exactly the same.   No marking at all!


I almost forgot to take a picture of the backing fabric, it was so unique and goes so well with the modern style!
