Sometimes being a pattern tester has ‘perks’ 
besides getting great patterns. 
For instance, fabric!
Corinne Wells of Frannie B Quilt Company
Designed a new line called ‘Elegance’. 

She reached out to her testers and asked if we could turn around 
a quick project using her new fabric line. 

I committed  to make a table runner and really 
loved the mustard colors in this line. 
Corrine sent me these fat quarters. 

I looked thru my patterns, quilt books, Pinterest for inspiration.
Found this pattern by Nancy Zieman.
The heartbeat idea didn’t do anything for me..
but I could figure a design that would be my style. 

We could only use solids or blenders to keep
her fabric line the star.   
I pulled these together.

A GRUNGE became my blender
And the cutting began 

I changed the pattern design to my liking. 
Making one continuous strip across vs the heart beat chart look!

A Denyse Schmidt stash fabric became the backing.  

I liked the was it was coming together. 
QAYG (quilt as you go) never disappoints me.

It’s just lovely!
The gold/mustard GRUNGE was perfect 
for the binding. 

This will look great this fall on my dining room table.
Now the hunt is on for the green and mustard pumpkins.
