A Summery Table Runner
When the ‘Flurry’ collection arrived I knew it wouldn’t be long before I put it to use and when I began making the table runner I wasn’t really in a hurry, it just turned out that way! The design was uncomplicated; putting it together was effortless and I thought the clean lines need plain quilting, which took no time at all.
I wanted a grey to set off the colour range (always a favourite) and went to look for something in Aberdashery and as usual found just the thing. A simple grey and white mini-stripe and to complement it perfectly another of the multi-coloured threads that just lift the quilting beautifully.
The checkerboard design was swiftly pieced
and in no time I had a sandwich and was ready to quilt the snappy, wavy lines. So simple.I cut more strips and cut them into randomly sized lengths to make the binding and there it was, complete in only a couple of hours over a few early evening, pre-dinner sewing sessions. Never was anything (made by me) so speedily done!
And what’s more I have plenty of ‘Flurry’ left!
