Bright Blocks Table Runner

What started out as a bunch of strips of brightly colored fabric, soon turned into my first Table Runner.  I didn't know what I was doing, so I asked Tiffany a lot of questions, Googled some tutorials, and made up my own design.  

My friend Madison is getting married today and I wanted her to have something fun and springy for her table.  This is the end product:

I drew up a basic design and then Jesse and I laid out the pieces. I had sewed my strips together and then cut them and turned them so that they were going all kinds of ways. 

piecing it together

One of the 16 stitches on my sewing machine.  What is that? I should have more than 16 stitches? I thought so too! My husband bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas!! I haven't been able to play with it yet, but I know it will be lots of fun!

The back and my first attempt at hand stitching binding on.

Wow! After this table runner, I feel like making a quilt. I really hope Madison and her new husband enjoy it and that it will bring a smile to their faces


  1. Looks awesome! Love the colors!

  2. Really sweet table runner, definitely happy and springy! Careful...hand stitching binding can be addicting...
