Gaze Tablerunner with Fat Quarter Shop

I'm so excited to share my Gaze Table runner with Fat Quarter Shop Tablerunner Bliss Quilt Along! I was so glad that I could use Moda's new collection Big Sky! It is perfect as my husband grew up inWyoming and even got chased by a moose when he was a kid. Plus those bears are just too cute! 

I chose to make the Graze Pattern from the Tablerunner Bliss book by Sheri Falls. I just love how this pattern really shows the larger prints of the Big Sky Collection. The blocks could also be easily adapted into a quilt by just making more of them!

2. Big Sky Collection - charm pack or create your own charm pack with yardage. I use 5 half-yard cuts to create my charm pack as the precuts were not available at the time when I ordered by fabric. Below are the fabrics that I selected.

I made 3 blocks for my table runner as it fit my dining table best....mine measures at 21.5" x 61.5"

For my backing I had to use those cute bears- Big Sky Tan Grizzly fabric.

A bit about the fabulous Tablerunner Bliss book by Sherri Falls.

Sherri Falls has designed 20 centerpiece-worthy tablerunners to celebrate each day! Every time you gather around the table with family and friends, treat each occasion with a heartwarming tablerunner. Whether it’s a holiday feast, a social soirĂ©e, or a weekday family dinner, your table will always extend a warm welcome!

I love Sherri's newest book. All 20 patterns are fabulous and so well written. I love being able to sew a pattern that is clearly explained with both diagrams and wording. Many of the blocks can also be adapted easily into pillows, table toppers, and quilts! 

Be sure to follow along with the Fat Quarter Shop Bloggers as they share all of the table runners from Tablerunner Bliss.
