I decided to make up a Table Runner for display in the shop and here it is pin-basted with my curvy quilting pins ready to quilt. It will be a sewing class as well as display and then it will be pressie for someone in my family. I really wanted to think outside my square of colours and wanted to achieve something modern and sleek. I think I achieved this with the colour choices. On this one I used Iron-on Pellon H640 and then quilted away in the ditch and bound the edges in the stripe.
Why stop at one table runner when you can make two? This Indigenous print cotton fabric I fell in love with as soon as it came in store and knew straight away what I was going to make. You will notice that I have only one main colour – the blue and mixed with my contrast choice I feel like I nailed it. I used a Iron-On Pellon H630 and love the flatness (if that is a word) it gives. I decided to add that narrow inner border then the black spot outer border. This time instead of binding the runner I just flipped over 2.5cms and hand stitched it down on the back. Take note that I used the quilt binding clips to hold it down while I stitched this…..way better than pins it doesn’t move and comes out nice & smooth.
One pattern used = Two Table Runners. Two different layouts = Two different look. Makes me sew happy.
