This quilt idea has been floating around in my EQ design files for several years, and finally this September I committed to turning it into a quilt. 

The original plan was for something super dramatic, hence why I opted to use Black and Lt. Grey as seen here.  The fabric is Spectrastatic from Andover.  

RISE OVER RUN - Kristy Daum Quilt Pattern

Yet, I knew that if I wanted to publish this as a quilt pattern I needed a few options.  So, I created a Scrappy version as well.  I choose a curated Kona Cotton FQ bundle (aptly named Birds of Paradise) from Fat Quarter Shop, and mixed it with a Grunge Basic in Vanilla

I posted the photos to Instagram, and asked for quilt name ideas. My readers were very generous; but one stuck out almost immediately - RISE OVER RUN.  

That phrase is something used in stairstep construction, as it relates to a rise of a stairstep, vs. the flat run measurement of the step. Seeing that I spent a good deal of my Summer trying to renovate the stairwell to my second story, it seemed apropos. 

The quilt top has been given to my friend Lilo of TraceCreekQuilting, who will be working her longarm quilting magic on it. After which, I'll be publishing the pattern. This time, I actually wrote the pattern and had it completely tech edited (by Yvonne of QuiltingJetGirl) before the quilt was finished. 

I'll be announcing the publication date on my Instagram page, whenever it has been chosen.
