Bohemian Twist Table Runner

I now have another beautiful table runner for my hutch! Introducing Bohemian Twist,


so named because of the awesome La Vie Boheme 10" stackers by Riley Blake from Calico Cat Fabrics and the Metro Twist pattern from Sew Kind of Wonderful. A fitting name for a winning combination!

The quilting turned out gorgeous too, if I do say so myself!


Lots of ruler work in the plain areas, with feathers in the prints.


And I'm very happy with my final border choice. Remember, I had this started?


Not very attractive. Instead, I found a solid dark navy that set off the piecing beautifully.


Originally, I had an orangey-red picked out for the binding, but it just overwhelmed the piece. Luckily, I had enough left of the green, which ties it all together. Definitely proves that nothing beats fabric auditioning! 

If you love this as much as I do, check out Calico Cat Fabrics and what Tanya has to offer. I'm happy to be a fabric ambassador for her shop, as this has been a great project!

Happy Quilting!

  13. The patterns from Sew Kind of Wonderful always make me drool, but are a little overwhelming for a beginning quilter. This is fabulous as a runner and makes the patterns a little more doable. Beautiful finish - lucky table!
