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.

Alphabet Soup - a new block-of-the-week.

Alphabet Soup !Big news:  This year I am rolling out a brand-new program called Alphabet Soup.

If you have been following me you know I like to play with letters and numbers and I have finally found the perfect way to publish and share those fun letters with you.

I developed this special program for the Southwind Inspiration Community and it is available for a limited time only.  Registration is open now until April 3rd.

After sewing out the entire alphabet I saw that I had actually developed two distinct fonts, I call them:
SouthwindGreek:  A font with straight linesSouthwindRoman:  A font with a curvy flair.  For even greater variety you can combine the two fonts and choose which letter you want straight, which to make curvy.  The varieties are endless and so is the fun of spelling out  words on your quilt. Just think of all the possibilities!

You will get:  26 letters, the numbers 0-9 and several secret bonus blocks (psst... one of them is the heart as seen in the Alphabet So…
