Fresh and Fancy Table Runner Club by Cotton Way Quilt Patterns

**Edit: Someone asked about the headband that Bonnie’s granddaughter is wearing. She posted the info in her comment!**

This has been a very good year for Bonnie Olaveson. With 2 weddings and 3 grandchildren born in 2009, yeah, I’d say it’s been an awesome year! This is little Olivia, her new sweet, adorable granddaughter, born on Thanksgiving. (Doing some vicarious braggin’!)

For her pattern business, Cotton Way, 2010 is going to be pretty sweet too!

Bonnie e-mailed us just a few weeks ago to say that 2010 marks her 20th year of her pattern business Cotton Way, and she is celebrating with a new club, the Fresh and Fancy Table Runner of the Month Club. We were all really excited to hear about it, and of course we had to get on board.

Each month of 2010, we will send out a table runner kit (pattern & fabric to make the table runner  shown on the pattern cover) to our members. All of the table runners Bonnie designed feature a different Moda collection (like Aster Manor, Verna, and Martinique) and are approximately 21″ x 42″. And the cool thing about these runners, is each side is “fresh” or “fancy” (hence the name :P)!

Here’s our January sample made up to demonstrate…
You get your fresh…

With a little dash of fancy…whichever pleaseth you 🙂

Sign-ups are going on now, so make sure you get a spot! Or if you’re thinking you’d rather do some than all, the first 6 patterns for January through June are already out and available for purchase too!

And psst, Bonnie’s doing a giveaway over at her blog as a little woo-hoo too, so hop on over there!

Thanks Bonnie! And here’s to a great 2010!


  1. Those table runners are gorgeous. I have never done a block of the month etc before, How do I do it? I have been to the store and added it to cart but it only says $4.99?? Will I be invoiced prior to shipping each month?

    Sorry for all the stupid questions lol.


    Oh and what a gorgeous little girl 🙂

  2. I better get stitching pretty quick to keep up with all of your wonderful ideas. I just received my first order from you today and I am so pleased. I love your website, your blog and all your attention to detail right down to the little pink stickers:)

  3. Beautiful baby and what a wonderful year of projects. Thanks for the heads up on Bonnie's giveaway too. OH, by the way, have you all been over to Lauries, yankee quilter blog to see the tutorial she posted for a fun, fast and beautiful quilted christmas ornament?
