Fanciful Flight Table Runner Tutorial

Amy Friendapplique, quilting, Sizzix, Tim Holtz7 Comments

I was inspired to make a “Fanciful Flight” table runner by not only the Tim Holtz Fanciful Flight die but by the masses of butterflies that have been appearing in my garden in recent days. Just the other day we counted over a dozen butterflies on my ornamental oregano.

I wanted the striking design of the butterflies to take center stage so I created a low volume patchwork background.  Indie fabrics by Pat Bravo proved to be just the thing for colorful butterfly wings!  I also used one Anna Maria Horner print.

I quilted with Angela Walter’s double loop pattern because I thought it looked like butterfly flight.

My tutorial is available on the Sizzix blog today.
