I am so happy I volunteered to help Suzy with this blog hop! I really enjoyed making this table runner from her new book - Folk Art Quilted Traditions, and am totally thrilled with how my project came out!
I loved how detailed the instructions were for the applique blocks. I chose this one because I loved the little heart shapes at the top of the flower. It was really quite easy to put this block together because of all the wonderful tips in the book. I picked up some great pointers that I can use on future projects as well. The instructions were easy to read and follow, and though the blocks are very detailed, I think just about anyone willing to take their time and be careful could make them.
Here's a picture of my block in progress. All the applique pieces for each block are clearly labeled for easy assembly, which was super helpful! I used machine applique for my block.
Several of us have made the table runner, and each one looks quite different. I used several different Island Batiks for my version - including my favorite Egg White background! The directions were great for the runner as well - it was a piece of cake to assemble.
Here is my block in the finished table runner. (Block number 5 in the book) I would love to make a quilt with all the blocks someday! If you like applique, you will definitely want this book for your library! There are several other one block projects, as well as larger quilts to make. If you would like to try your hand at a project, you can win a free copy of the book from Suzy as well as some Island Batik fat quarters.
