Hi Everyone,

So here it is in Kari's words:

Quilting a Victorian Table Runner

Guest Blog Post by Kari Schell from On Point Quilter.

Years ago saw a Victorian Table Runner at Quilted Treasures in Rogers and immediately needed to buy the pattern and make the quilt.  I don't remember who the recipient of the gifted table runner was. But the table runner remains a favorite of mine.

Fast forward to a week ago... a customer brought me her Victorian Table Runner.  She wanted something "custom".

This table runner can present a bit of a challenge for long-arm quilters as problems can develop if you are not careful around the fold-back curves. Also - because of the nature of the fold back technique there can be some slight variation from unit to unit.

I spent some time in Art and Stitch creating two major designs that I think complement the Victorian Table Runner and would keep me away from the fold-back curves.  Art and Stitch is digitizing software for machine quilters and embroiderers.

Using Art and Stitch I created two major designs that complements the Victorian Table Runner.
My Art and Stitch video tutorai will share with you my process for creating one of the designs - which I am calling Victorian Scroll.
Here are some pictures of the finished quilt.  This quilt was pieced by Carolyn Oakes and will be on display at the Forest Lake Quilt show today (April 19th).  Thanks Carolyn for letting me share photos of your quilt!
