Introducing the Tilly’s Tea Party Table Runner

Introducing the Tilly’s Tea Party Table Runner

The latest sewing pattern in the Molly and Mama range has the loveliest description!

“You are invited to a delicious tea party with Miss Tilly! Featuring three English paper pieced blocks with beautifully embroidered hexagons and hand quilted detailing, Tilly’s Tea Party Table Runner is the perfect centrepiece to an afternoon of leisurely conversation and the clinking of china tea cups.”

Doesn’t that just sound so inviting?

The instant download pattern is coming soon to the store. Sign up to the newsletter to be notified when it releases! Or head to Creative Abundance to find paper pattern stockists. Shops can order wholesale patterns there too.

The table runner is just under 40″ (or a metre) long. Each EPP panel has a different embroidery design inside its centre hexagon. And you can match your thread colours to whichever fabric you choose to sew with. The fabric used for this version is Rose and Violet’s Garden by Miss Rose Sister Violet for Riley Blake designs. Hand quilting, lace and stripy binding provide the finishing touches for this dainty project.

As an Aurifil Artisan, we’re asked to participate in monthly challenges. The focus this March was on English paper piecing. And I feel that this beautiful table runner certainly fits the bill!

My ‘Go To’ thread for English paper piecing is Aurifil’s 80 weight cotton in a light or neutral shade. This fine thread sews like a dream and disappears effortlessly into the seams. That’s why I love sharing it with everyone!

I talk more about the materials and notions I love to use for EPP over at my Beginner’s Tutorial. You might find it helpful if you’re new to English paper piecing. I have to warn you though, that once you start this hand stitching technique, you’ll find it seriously addictive!

I love the way this project came together and I’m looking forward to possibly even designing a quilt! So stay tuned.

Happy stitching, Lauren x

    It’s such a beautiful project and I love the embroidery in the hexagon centres and the extra lace detail you’ve added to the binding. Just so lovely.
