Reversible Table Runner

Is it tablerunner or table runner?  I never know.

Reversible Table Runner: 4th of July SIde

Anyways, I have today for your viewing pleasure a new tablerunner/ table runner that I made.  I had the idea that I wanted to make a patriotic tablerunner to go on the breakfast bar in my kitchen.  I looked around the interwebs and found this one from Fat Cats Quilts.  Finding fabric in y stash was easy.  I keep all my Denyse Schmidt fabric from Joanns next to each other in my stash and they always seem to scream "patriotic" in their red, whites, and blues so I grabbed them.  Unfortunately all the red DS fabrics I had had too much white in them, so I scrapped them and instead just pulled reds from my stash.

And there's a surprise!  It's reversible!!!

Reversible Table Runner: Everyday Side

When trying to figure out a backing I had the thought that it would be nice to make a tablerunner for the breakfast bar that was a little more "everyday".  Rooting around in my stash I found some Alexander Henry Farmdale and paired them with a green that has some darker green cross-hatching and came up with this design.  The colors photograph a little oddly but in person it's really beautiful.

I still need to bind it.  It's on my list to go to the store today and get some red fabric with tiny white polka dots to use for binding.

edit: It's bound!  I absolutely LOVE it!

Over the weekend I also finished my June block for Stash Bee.  This month we were required to make crystalline shapes on a black background.  I hand pieced mine and ended up appliquing it by hand as well.  It was a very relaxing project and I really love the way my block turned out.

BTW, this thing is HUGE.  It measures 15.5"x15.5"

p.s. I'm linking up this week with Manic Monday Linky Party, Sew Modern Monday, and Fabric Tuesday.


  1. I LOVE your table runner! The fabrics are so nice, I especially like the red and blue. I'm working on a quilt right now that has one of the same fabrics in it - the dusty blue fabric with the flowers in a row. :)

    Very nice work!

  2. So pretty! Is there a pattern? I am new to quilting, but I love this!
