Springy Table Runner


Posted on January 25th, by Amy in finished project. 26 comments

Hi there!  I had a fun and productive weekend, and the best part is – there’s no school today!  Friday was the end of the quarter, so the lovely teachers have a day to work without students.

I finished piecing a quilt, and prepped the backing, made from this beautiful collection – Botany by Lauren and Jessi Jung, I believe it will be out in March.  The colors are fresh and scream spring!  Before I finished my quilt top, I had already planned a quick table runner for my living room!

Honestly, I think I spent about an hour total on this piece.  I even stitched the binding on the machine – not as hard as everyone makes it out to be!  The only thing I would do different next time is cut the binding smaller – I was working with jelly roll strips.

 Hopefully my table will stay clear so I can admire it all the time!  I hope you had a good weekend!

I need to go wade through all the giveaway comments and announce them – cross your fingers :)

    Great runner! I need to make one for our dining room table but can't decide on fabric….as usual. :)

    Lovely little runner!! Glad you found it a breeze to machine-stitch the binding… It has always been a disaster for me. And hand-stitching gives me an excuse to sit and watch a couple of movies while still being "productive". ;-)

    Wow, you made this beauty in under an hour!? You're amazing! Lovely new fabrics too! I've never tried machine sewing the entire binding before but it sounds like a great time saver!
