This pattern was so fun to put together that Kathy and I couldn't make just one! Here is a sampling of the colorways we tried.
I had the pleasure of making the classic black and grey and the more modern variation.
You can see the quilting designs I chose here on the backs. A mix of my favorite curls and straight lines and even a few pearls on the modern one for good measure.
The Detour pattern is written to make one table runner and 4 place mats, and is simple enough for an experienced beginner to enjoy. I'm sure many of you wouldn't have any trouble working out of your stash to make a quick gift as it only requires three coordinating fabrics in 0.8 m, 0.5 m and 0.25 m cuts.
We have one other bit of excitement to share and that is the re-branding of all of our patterns with our vibrant new logo! Many thanks to our dear friend, artist and quilter Dawn who shared her talent (and patience) with us to create what Highway 10 Designs had been missing.
