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. 🙂

Beautiful colors and fabric choices! I can’t believe you did that in under an hour! Thanks so much for linking up at Clean and Scentsible. I’ll be featuring it tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend!
This is wonderful! I found you on Sumo’s Sweet Stuff and I’ll be following you now. I love fabric and I have thought of making a table runner so many times, but haven’t tried it yet. Of course, I might have to put no-slip backing on because my toddler likes to climb on the table. Thanks for sharing!

Walk me through the binding if you could, that is the only part I’m really nervous about with my crib quilt I’m working on….
This ‘extra from the backing’ method seems a lot easier than traditional binding you think?
