Happy Day Table Runner {Free Pattern}

Hi there! I am so excited to be apart of the Riley Blake Happy Day Blog tour!  I am LOVING this fabric by Lori Whitlock.  She did an amazing job designing this line - it is so bright and cheery!  I can't get enough of it! 

I thought I would design a new table runner pattern for this fabric.  You guys know how much I love my pinwheels! :)  It was almost necessary to make pinwheels out of this fabric! Pinwheels + Happy Day fabric = LOVE

I decided to do a double pinwheel block, and I love how it turned out! I kept the large pinwheels all the same and then alternated the yellow and blue for the smaller pinwheels. 

I also added a touch or ric-rac to the runner for a little extra cuteness! 

For the back I used my favorite print from the entire collection.  Doesn't this print just make you smile?  I used the red dot print for the binding - which really just finishes it off nicely!

I got a little adventurous with the quilting.  I wanted to try and make the pinwheels pop out - so I did more dense quilting around the pinwheels and in the white of the pinwheels to make this happen.   If you wanted to keep your quilting simple- you could easily just do some straight line quilting! Which would be equally as cute. 

Alright let's get started!  We have kits available - and they include the backing! So pick up a kit and you will have everything you need to make this sweet project!

You can follow the tutorial below - or you can download a printable version HERE!
