I’m excited to share my Hunter Star Table runner with the Fat Quarter shop today! This is part of the their Vintage and Classic series.
I decided to use V and Co ombre for this project. I have had this stashed waiting for the perfect project. The hunter star was a perfect match!
I recently got a new table (yay! My family can all fit!) and I needed a new table runner. The Fat Quarter Shop is offering the pattern for the table runner here. The pattern also includes lap, twin and queen sizes.
This is the first time I have used V and Co ombre and I am in LOVE! Plus aqua is my favorite color! I arranged the blocks from dark to light. I love the ombre effect across my whole table!
This block is quite simple to construct. Typically a hunter star quilt block is paper pieced. This pattern is traditional piecing and comes together quickly. I think I need to make a Hunter Star quilt now!
I quilted the table runner using straight lines. I use a walking foot on my Janome machine. The walking foot really helps me keep my lines straight and consistent. I followed the angle of the Hunter Star which created a fun echo of the angles.
I bound my quilt using Moda Bella solid aqua. It matches the aqua ombre perfect! I finished hand stitching the binding while watching the Olympics. This is the first project I have hand bound and I love it! I am just usually so impatient to finish that I will machine bind my project. But now I think I am hooked!
I had so much fun making this table runner! And styling it! I was able to get out some of my favorite farm house inspired items and take some pics. I had so much fun!
