Ruth's Table Runner
Another custom quilt that we did recently was for Ruth G. [O.K. You guessed it! It's "Raggedy Ruth" Grihalva]. She designed this table runner recently after being impressed with shades of blue. This is the second in a series of customized longarming articles about the Innova AutoPilot Mach 3.

This will be a Raggedy Ruth Designs pattern in the future. I'm showing it now because it was done this week as a ... you know, when you are inspired by an idea you get it done!

Center Star On-Point
I personally love everything: the borders, the four squares, the feather blocks, the "connected" flying geese, ..., you name it: I love it! It is so elegant and clean!

From a design point-of-view there are a couple of items of note:
  • The center star is from Raggedy Ruth Designs' "Beyond The Stars". I refer to it as an extended Ohio star.
  • Extending the center star to a block on-point creates four nice blocks for feather designs.
  • "Connected" Flying Geese
    The extended star rays creates the need for a "connected" flying geese effect. Ruth filled this by taking two half Fulton Feathers and modifying them using Innova's Arc Drawing function.
  • The overall construction has the appearance of two rows of five log cabin blocks
  • Because of the center on-point star block cuts into the two blocks on the edge, Innova's Mask function was used to cleanly cut out the larger feather square to make room for the more delicate white-background square. This makes a clean separation.
Masking Example
It is amazing how the functions of a longarm as well as how it is integrated into a longarmer's work-flow can be inspiring to the longarmer as well as to the viewer.

This table runner will be on display at the Accomplish Quilting booth at the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo/Cincinnati in Sharonville September 20-22, 2018.

Stop by the Accomplish Quilting Booth and say "Hi!"
Have a blessed day!
