Here in Michigan we experience several overcast days. After the Christmas season and all its hustle and bustle, inspiration and excitement for the day can kinda become, well blah. . . I like to find things that make what I call “sunshine” and add them to my day. I found this “How Does Your Garden Grow” bed runner over at the AccuQuilt site. If you create an account on their site, you can download this (and many other patterns) for free. I love free!
This pattern reminds me of spring and brightens up a bedroom. I also like that it’s a project that can be completed in a weekend because of its easy piecing and fusible appliqué. It’s a great project for a confident beginner and the pattern includes the bed runner and the pillow cases. I know that there are several bright and spring-like fat quarter collections that you can choose to make this bed runner or you can use up your scraps. Either way, it will come out beautiful!
The dies needed to complete this project are:
If you make this bed runner and pillow cases, please share a picture of your project in the comments. I love to see what others make! Happy sewing and have a sunny day!
