The Bloomberg Table Runner

4 comments by Christine Lux

The Bloomberg Table Runner (one of the latest pattern releases by from our sister company, Branch & Blume) is a new favorite around here. With signs of life starting to appear in the garden, we're getting really excited for the flowers that will be appearing soon. 

The name for this one comes from a fellow bloom-loving, quilting friend, whose last name happens to be Bloomberg! 

For the original/cover girl version of the pattern, I used Mix It Up for the petals and some yellows from Sundance with a Crossweave background in Graphite.  

I wanted to play around with it and see how it would look in different colors. I had a suggestion on Instagram for pink (a no brainer!) and a black eyed susan version. 

So, I grabbed a bundle of Midnight in the Garden and played around a bit with both. 

Which one is your favorite? 

Here's a quick video I posted on Instagram showing how I free motion quilted the flowers.

I think a quilt version of this one is next ... now to decide if all the flowers should be the same color or a variety. Here's a quick mock up I made of it in quilt form. 

What do you think?

Happy sewing!

    Would love a quilt version— how about coneflowers – they come in all colors and white—centers would be yellow to an orange and petals could be pink, orange, yellow, purple.
    I have some K Fassett fabric might be perfect but would need a background.

    I love it. Can’t wait to see what you come up with and I think the flowers should be multiple colors.

    I love this pattern! ❤️But I am a sucker for daisies, black-eyed Susan’s and sunflowers! 🌻 Will you kit it?

    Love the Midnight in a Garden fabric. I think that’s the one I would prefer. But, they both are lovely. I would love to see a quilt version. What a great pattern!!
