A while back I fell in love with this table runner over at Sew4Home. You know how I love a project using solids! With all the Kona fat quarters that I've been getting in the mail (the Christmas gift that goes on and on), I figured I had lots of colours to work with.
Fat Quarter Shop had just what I wanted - a Kona Charm Pack. I've never ordered one of these before - always been leery of the charm pack since I'm a dedicated pre-washer. More new things! And, no, they didn't just throw in that Pearl Bracelet fabric... I've always wanted some. So hard to choose what colour!
It was tough breaking into that charm pack. The hoarder in me just wanted to keep it. My precious Kona!
It took some doing to convert the pattern from Michael Miller Cotton Couture colours. The original pattern gives the names and numbers, but not for Konas! I tried to go all Q-D on the project, but I just didn't have it in me. Ultimately, I just winged it with what I had, keeping roughly the same number of each colour.
...producing two HST blocks. Ultimately, I'll have enough blocks to make two table runners!
Just a sample... Grab the marking pen... time for more HSTs!
This time, I went for two shades of grey - Charcoal and, you guessed it, Ash! - along with the white.
I'm pretty pleased with the quilting... straight line asymmetrical. Another baby quilt for the collection.
Doesn't she look happy out there on the deck? Orphans no more! The daylily shot is just for you, Mom!
Even after two projects, I'm still lovin' the Kona HST. Which is a good thing since I have another table runner to make!
Hope you're sewin' away on something you're loving!
