I have a quick finish to share with you today! Quick_Column_Quilts_Blog_Tour_Badge

Nancy Zieman’s new book – Quick Column Quilts is full of beautiful and useful patterns for any quilter!

This table runner is based off of the Quilt to Give pattern in chapter 13 – I’ve admired this quilt, for a while now, and knew it was the quilt that I wanted to stitch up! I have been stitching from my scrap box lately, and knew that I wanted to make a more masculine table runner for our dining table in my Modern Neutral fabrics. Sometimes it’s a  little odd to celebrate my husband or son’s birthday with a floral runner on the table, and this will be the perfect solution. Quick Column Quilts - AmysCreativeSide.com

While there’s lots of instruction for cutting from yardage, I had a blast pulling scraps from my bin and pairing them up! Since I just had one color of sashing, I opted to have one strip between each pieced row.

Quick Column Quilts is a great addition to any quilting library, with 13 great patterns, Nancy has also added in her tips for making quilts, the tools we use, and she takes the time to explain why we use them! It’s beautifully put together, with stunning examples of each quilt to inspire you too! I highly encourage you to seek out this book, for yourself, or a friend that is ready to learn more about quilting.
