Tangerine Dream Table Runner in Sewing World Magazine May 2014

Oh me oh my! My first published quilt pattern! My first magazine article! I am all sorts of excited! You can find my Tangerine Dream table runner quilt pattern in the May 2014 issue of Sewing World Magazine. The quilt is made from Kona cotton solids in Brown, Tangerine, Papaya, Lagoon, and Cream.

My wonderful mother quilted the quilt with simple, geometric designs to play off the geometric shape of the runner. She never quilts my quilts the way I ask her to, and they’re always way more awesome than if she had followed my instructions.

I know that tangerine and turquoise isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so I put together illustrations of what the quilt would look like in different colorways. Using all Kona cottons you can get these different looks with: Mulberry, Thistle, Steel, Shadow, and Black for a gray and purple colorway; Valentine, Kumquat, Kiwi, Cyan, and Canary for a bright and cheery colorway; or Laurel, Parsely, Sable, Bison, and Moss for an earthy colorway.

The first time I made this quilt, I used a selection of muted prints. Being such a simple pattern, it’s really easy to pick fabrics for it and it does a great job of showing off the center fabric! (I loved the twig print so much that I made it into a canvas for our wall).

  1. It’s great Erin & what a thrill to be a published patternist. BTW, I’m super jealous of it, and the credenza you have it on, too!

  2. Erin! How do you have time for all of this! Congratulations :) It’s a beautiful pattern, you’ve got the proportions just right and I love the arts and crafts feel of it. Beautiful credenza, too, that’s the type of furniture I dream about!

  3. Congratulations, you awesome, talented, creative, hard-working lady! I am going to be able to say “I knew her when she was but a lass, just getting started in the world of sewing.” Seriously beautiful, clean design lines – love it!

  4. I LOVE that colour combo – so fresh looking and in your face (in such a good way!)
