Blackberry Ramble Table Runner Pattern

I have been busy taking photos of my quilts! Blackberry Ramble Table Runner has been on my dining room table lately so I thought I would write about the design process and the thoughts I had while making the Blackberry Ramble Table Runner.

First of all, I had that gorgeous purple fabric I have used in the border blocks! This is where the process started from, What goes with the colour purple? 

Rich golds, blacks and deep burgundy reds I thought...... So I pulled fabrics from my stash, trying out the combinations until I had a selection that worked with the original purple I started with. ( it's easy to lose track of the original plan lol )

I also had a grey with directional leaf design........ they should go together, right ? It was a little tricky getting just the right combination but you can see how they worked in the border blocks with a touch of rich gold fabric to tie it all together.

Finding a background fabric for the applique proved a little tricky, everything I tried seemed wrong ! Oh that happens to me all the time, then I had a light bulb moment. I had some solid fabrics that were left over's, who would have thought that dull grey would have looked so good.

I loved quilting the Blackberry Ramble Table Runner, I tried mixing combinations of feather and circles designs randonly together. So pleased with the outcome. I used a fine thread as I knew the quilting would be close. I also stitch in the ditch around all the applique pieces to really bring out the dimension.

If you would like to make a Blackberry Table Runner too, here's the pattern

Happy Stitching

The inspiration for this quilt came from a small picture of part of an antique quilt, made with the nine patch block. I think what inspired me was the use of colour and of course the wonderful use of the flying geese blocks in the border.
I hope you enjoy my pictures of this quilt.
