Floating Triangles Table Runner in Modern By The Yard!

I'm thrilled to share my latest magazine project, the Floating Triangles Table Runner. It's available today in the FREE summer issue of Modern By The Yard. The magazine is Benartex Fabrics' exploration of modern quilting topics and patterns.  I designed this project to be beginner friendly and show off a modern aesthetic, from design to quilting!

I used prints from Fresh Bloom by Michele D'Amore for Benartex - I love how modern and bright they are! As half square triangles set up against white, they really shine. Also, I'm pretty sure that "Web Green," the lime green with the random white lines, has become a staple in my green fabric stash. I've already used it in another project.

I free motion quilted an echo inside each triangle, and quilted to emphasis the cascading blue and green triangles. This produced intersecting lines, which I only realized after I started but quilting fell in love it. Walking foot quilting and Aurifil white thread (2024) for the win!

Plus, I got to use that big, beautiful flower print ("Bloom Teal/Green") on the back (photo below for scale).

Benartex also includes instructions for how to make quick coordinating fabric napkins. So awesome! 

Make sure you check out the free magazine today! It also includes projects by my friends Chris of Made By ChrissieD and Jane of Twiggy and Opal! And in case you missed last issue, here's a link to my previous project, Deconstructed Churn Dash.

Linking up to TGIFF, Crazy Mom Quilts, Needle and Thread Thursday.
