Today I am excited about a couple of different things. Sharing this Spring Table Runner and my little sister is coming home tomorrow!! I can’t wait! She has been gone on an LDS mission to France for the last 18 months, and I get to see her tomorrow. I am so excited I can hardly wait!
Now on to the table runner. 🙂
I was out shopping for fabric one day and decided that I wanted to make a table runner for Valentines, with green on the back so it could double for St. Patrick’s Day. Well, I picked out these fabrics and got home and got to work. Once I had it finished, I decided it looked more like Spring than Valentines day, so I went with it.
This was SO easy to make, but I didn’t take tutorial pictures, so I’ll try my best to explain it. I started by cutting my fabric into strips. Then I sewed my strips end to end, making one reallllly long strip of fabric. I decided the width that I wanted the table runner and started cutting my one long strip into smaller ones and laying them out for the runner.
Once I had them all laid out I sewed them together side by side and then I had my table runner top all done.I put my fabric backing on leaving enough extra on the sides so that I could fold it over the top for the binding. Then using my darning foot on my regular sewing machine, I quilted this.
Then I bound it, and it was done!
This only took me about 30 minutes to an hour start to finish! It was so fast!! And if I really wanted to, I could turn it over for St. Patrick’s Day, but I think I’ll just keep it on the Spring side. 🙂
