A little tutorial

Easy table runners are always a quick way to use up left over fabric. Here's what I do.

Cut 24 strips, 2" x 5", of assorted coordinating fabrics

Cut 10 2" x 2" for accenting blocks
 Lay the strips and accenting blocks in whatever order you like.

After you find a pattern that pleases your eye, start sewing the strip together.

Trim the edges.

Cut a 1 1/4" strip from a darker fabric for the inner border.
Cut 2 1/2" strips of outer border fabric and add to table runner
And now it's all ready for quilting!
I have enjoyed making these table runners in different color ways for the different seasons. This one is in icy blues and a touch of gold for winter. This table runner is longer, using 42  2" x 5" strips.
I hope you enjoy making this easy table runner.
Happy Quilting!

What a wonderful way to use up extra little bits of fabric so they don't languish in your scrap bin!! You could even make them reversible if you lack storage for lots of seasonal table runners. Thank you!
