Table Runner



Cami's aunt is hosting a raffle to raise money for the Relay for Life, so Cami put out a call for handcrafted items for the home. Originally I had wanted to put together a kitchen towel and potholder set, but the pre-made towels I bought were horribly crooked and I didn't want to have to remake them in order to embellish them.





Instead, I improvised this table runner with some of my new favorite fabric line, Lizzie Dish. I had the two solid fabrics already in my stash, so I ended up combining the three fabrics into the table runner top and then quilting it with diagonal stripes. I forgot to measure it before I sent it off to Cami, but it was about 40" x 14". I like this runner so much that I might even use the remaining fabric to make one for our kitchen table.

  1. Loooooooove that fabric! Oh dear. the whole LINE is tempting.... I just sorted my stash last night and was bemoaning its bigness. But.... man is that cute stuff. where did you buy it? no, wait. maybe you shouldn't tell me. maybe i need to come up with a SPECIFIC need and use for it first. no, go ahead and tell me. sigh....

  4. Wow! I love the simplicity. It's proof that complicated isn't necessarily better. I do have a tip of quilting diagonal lines. Since you only quilted one direction, the table runner will have the tendancy to skew when its washed. You can work around this by blocking it.
