My Cotton Way Tablerunners

If you are looking for the Ruby giveaway click here.

Last year I was in the Cotton Way Fresh and Fancy Table Runner Club from The Fat Quarter Shop. I was still so new to quilting and sewing that I had no idea who the designers were. I was pleasantly surprised that these patterns all were by Bonnie of Bonnie and Camille. I definitely had a favorite pattern among the tablerunner patterns. It was the August Table Runner and is still available!

I made 2 of these tablerunners so far. The kit came with Sweetwater's Make Life fabric and was the first tablerunner I ever made. It was also the first time I ever did any quilting other than in the ditch so I was really proud of my diagonal lines, wonky and all.

At this point in my quilting life I had no idea that there were actual fabric lines that went together and were made by the same designer. I probably should have put 2 and 2 together since they were all in the same area at the quilt store. But I knew that I was in love with writing on fabric so here's what I chose for the next one.

Of course I chose Pure. The funny thing is that I didn't realize they were from the same designer until Sunkissed came out. I guess I was a very naive quilter at first.

There were other Fresh and Fancy Cotton Way table runner kits I got. I made a few tablerunners, but gave them away and wasn't smart enough to take a pic.

Have you ever seen a Cotton Way pattern? My current favorites are the Christmas Stars Quilt Pattern and the Cuddle Me Cozy Quilt Pattern. Both can be found at the Fat Quarter Shop on the Bonnie and Camille Page.

Come back tomorrow to see a great tablerunner made with Ruby from Tracey at Peony Teacup.


  1. They are lovely! Thank you for sharing the patterns. I have never made a table runner before, but I think it is something I need to do :)


What do you think? I'd love to hear from you :)
