This super cute spring table runner has been in the works for the past month. I finally finished it up last week and it is ready to show off. I do not claim this super cute pattern all myself. You can find this super cute pattern at Shabby Fabrics. They get all the credit for this cute table runner.
I happened to purchase it as a kit at the Road to CA quilt show in Ontario. It was the first kit that I ever purchased from them. I have to say that it was so well put together and organized; every single fabric labeled and nicely organized. Fantastic!
I worked at first on the applique sections at each end of the table runner. I used the machine applique method that is demonstrated in the tutorial here.
I took the photo here so that you could see the front of one of the panels and the back of the other panel. I use blanket stitch and matching thread as much as possible.
Here’s the machine piecing in progress for the small squares that make up the bulk of the table runner. Yes, I pin every single square on each side of the each and every seam. I think it makes for a better end product.
I have now assembled the entire table runner and am just starting to sew on the ric rac across the top of the applique piece.
TIP: Do not pull the ric rac too tight when sewing it on…it will pucker the other fabric around it.
Here are the finished photos of the table runner. I did simple line quilting on the squares and then did some meandering quilting around the applique pieces.
A super cute backing fabric and binding.
Here’s the entire quilt! Super cute and very spring!
Happy Spring! Hope it is starting to warm up in your part of the world. Today, we are getting one last blast of winter here in California.
