Paradigm Showcase Tour

Hi friends,

Today I am sharing a project I created with a new line of fabric coming soon from Sarah Thomas aka Sariditty called Paradigm.

This is a beautiful pastel rainbow of colors with geometric shapes and butterflies! What goes perfectly with spring colors and butterflies - you guessed it - flowers. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to make another Flower Shop project, this time something smaller - a table runner. You can find the Flower Shop pattern here.

The fabrics I chose for this project are a split between Sarah’s Paradigm prints and coordinating Indah Batiks also from Hoffman Fabrics. She did an excellent job coordinating matching fabrics and the combination of the two came together flawlessly.

I have a new much longer dining table and the large size of the three Flower Shop blocks worked perfectly as a table runner for this spring! It also works nicely as a bed runner on my full size guest bed.

The quilting I chose for this project is one of my favorite curved line stitches on my Janome sewing machine. It gives a softer look than the regular straight line stitching I usually do on quilts.

You can faintly see the print I used as the background. I LOVE white with light gray design as a background. It gives the illusion of a solid but with so much more depth. This fabric is called Off White and is a part of the Paradigm range of prints.

I didn’t quite have enough of Sarah’s fabric for my backing but I found an older Hoffman digital fabric I had in my stash that turned out to be the most perfect match ever! Look at how the white, coral, purple and aqua shades match Sarah’s line so well.
