Modern Petals Revisited

by Nicole
My kaleidoscope blocks are waiting patiently while I attend to other things. One of those things has been a commissioned quilt based on the Modern Petals table runner I published in the Winter 2014 issue of Modern Patchwork.

A client saw the table runner and asked that I make one to fit a narrow wall in her home. I said, “Yes,” and got to work making a larger version, customized to fit the wall.

I did the quilting differently than the first time around, quilting more densely in the background and filling the petals with a wide straight line spiral. Since the background quilting is so dense, it flattens the background, which makes the petals puff up a bit. It’s a nice contrast.

This weekend I finished it and sent it off to its new home (the quilt tag is by Gutentags).

I hope it is everything my client imagined it to be.

Gutentags says they are not doing new tags at this time, only re-orders for previous customers. =( Any suggestions on another place to get custom tags?

Do you have a pattern for this terrific table runner? I've shown it to friends and they all want to make it.
