“On the Run”: A free pattern

“On the Run”
Copyright 2018 by Susan Brubaker Knapp
My latest piece, “On the Run,” is made entirely with fabrics from Jamie Fingal’s new fabric line, “Sewing 101,” for RJR Fabrics. The line will be in fabric stores starting in April 2018. It is super cute, and features sewing notions – pincushions, rotary cutters, scissors, spools of thread, buttons – on brightly colored fabrics and blacks and whites. 

The scissors are tiny bits of different fabrics sewn together, and reverse appliquéd under the white fabric. I quilted it with perle cotton around the scissors, and then echo machine stitching. The binding is little strips of many of the fabrics, all sewn together. 

The pattern is available – as a free PDF download – on my website!
