Charmed Living Runner
Hi all! I'm Rebecca Silbaugh from Ruby Blue Quilting Studio. I'm pleased to introduce you to my Charmed Living Runner design. This is my first project for the Moda Bake Shop (Thanks Moda!) and I could be more excited to share it with you. It's a great project to make for you or as a gift. With the variety of charm packs available, you can make this out of any fabric and it will look spectacular. Also included are optional applique instructions. Feel free to change the applique to suit your fabrics or leave it out entirely.
I hope you enjoy this pattern and have as much fun making one as I have. For more information on who I am and what other patterns I have designed, please check out my blog at rubybluequilts.blogspot.com. Also, for wholesale inquiries or more information on where my patterns are sold, please e-mail me at RubyBlueQuilts@gmail.com.
* Backing - 3/4 Yard
* Binding - 1/4 Yard
* 16" square scrap for the flower petals
* 4" square scrap for the large flower center
* 2" x 4" scrap for the small flower center
* 6" square scrap for the leaves
* 1 Yard Green 1/2" ricrac for flower stems
* Threads to match
Begin by separating each of the charm squares into piles. There will be a pile for each piece that will need to be cut. This is a good planning step to make sure you distribute the colors.
You will need one pile with 3 squares, one with 18 squares, one with 11 squares, and one with 8 squares. Keep in mind it might be helpful to use smaller prints in the pile with 11 squares since they will be cut the smallest.
Alternate the small and large "dark" pieces by sewing 4 units together side to side. Make 2 borders. Each border should measure 4-1/2" x 18-1/2".
