As promised, here is Jon’s completed table runner using the Daisy Garden panel. When you first look at the Daisy Garden panel, most people would look at it and see placemats and coasters. We tried to turn this into something else and it goes to show what can be done when you think outside the box and rearrange a panel.

Jon took each element of the panel and rearranged it to create a decent sized table runner. He started by cutting out each square and rectangle adding on a ½“ seam allowance around each piece, he laid them out to make a long rectangle design. Flying geese where added to compliment the design and bring out the reds in the patterns to make this a feature and just simply put borders around each one. It was so simple to do and great fun to quilt. With all the flowers and butterflies in the designs it was great fun to quilt around these to make each one really pop. You can really go to town with this when quilting or keep it simple. Jon decided to free motion machine quilt the runner along the beige sashing. To finish it off he used a dark aqua binding to match the colours in the daisy garden collection.

Here is a list of all the fabrics Jon used to finish his project:

·         Red: Moda Basic- Avalon 2019924

·         Dark aqua: Moda Marble- 9806

·         Beige: Makower Spraytime- 2800 Q03
