Antique Table Runner Blog Hop and Giveaway

What a great day! I am so happy to have you here today for my post on the Antique Ribbon Tablerunner Blog Hop with Fat Quarter Shop for the launch of their newest pattern. This is a fun stitch and flip project that is easy to do and the results are impressive.

"Antique Ribbon Tablerunner" pattern by Fat Quarter Shop. Pieced and quilted by Daydreams of Quilts using "Evergreen" by Basic Grey for Moda.

This pattern uses the Braided Border paper from Triangles on a Roll to make the borders. Normally I am not a big foundation paper piecing fan (the results are beautiful but I find it so frustrating).  This stitch and flip method is very easy and achieves the same precise result as regular foundation paper piecing. Fat Quarter Shop have a video tutorial to show you how to do it. As an added bonus, ripping out all the papers afterwards along the needle perforations is quite rewarding.

A closer look at the braided border. I always love the Christmas lines that Basic Grey designs. The bias candy cane stripe is perfect for binding.

My dining table can seat 10 people comfortably so you can see that this is a good sized runner. This would also be lovely on a buffet.
The braids look impressive running in opposite directions on the sides of the center panel. I found the second braid went faster than the first as I got more used to the technique.
Tips and tricks:
