Antique Ribbon Table Runner Pattern Review

Friday, December 11, 2015
I have had a few "pinch-me" moments since I've started blogging, and one came recently when I was invited to review a pattern for The Fat Quarter Shop.  I was given a credit to the shop and a copy of the pattern in exchange for my review, the opinions however are my own.  The pattern is called Antique Ribbon Table Runner.  It's a really fun pattern and it's made really simply by using a paper foundation.
I decided to make a Christmas version and used Merry Matryoshka fabric from Riley Blake.
This was my first time using a paper foundation for my piecing and I was a little nervous, but I shouldn't have been.  It is really quite fun and makes your piecing look really good.  The product that the pattern calls to use is Triangles on a Roll flying geese and 6" braided paper.  As I got going I noticed that the fabric hung over one side of the paper further on one side than the other and I started panicking but I did a bit of research and discovered it's normal and how it should look. That was a relief.  I wish I could have watched this video on how to assemble the runner- it would have helped.  I strongly recommend watching it before you start your table runner.
The runner is nice and large and with small children running around my house I decided to shorten it so it wouldn't hang over the ends of my table.
You can purchase the pdf pattern right here and if you'd like to make the Runner in the video- you can purchase the quilt kit all ready for you to put together right here.

I have another project coming up next week using the paper foundation that I can't wait to show you.  But for now, have a great weekend!

xoxo,
Amy

This is a lovely Christmas table runner! I've been meaning to make a Christmas quilt for our house, but I'll probably have more success if I start with a table runner. Thanks for the idea!

Love the colors. I may have to pull out Triangles on a Roll and give it a try.

This is so beautiful. I love the way it was put together. You did an amazing job! No way I ever would have guessed that it was your first paper pieced project :)
