It’s been a crazy week and I was in the mood for a simple, just-wing-it kind of project this afternoon.
I bought several 1/2 yard cuts of St. Patrick’s Day fabric a couple weeks ago and pulled them all out to make a simple table runner. No planning, no Excel spreadsheets, no quilting, just easy.
I used six of the prints for the top of the table runner and just cut them in 3″ x 18″ (roughly) strips. Why roughly? Because my local fabric shop cuts fabric like this:
I fiddled with the strips until I had an order I liked and sewed them all together with 1/2″ seams, then pressed the seams open and squared up the edges.
I layered the pieced top and one more 1/2 yard cut right sides together, trimmed the backing to match, and sewed them together leaving one end open.
Turned the whole thing right side out, hand stitched the open end closed, gave it one last press and I was done! Quick, easy and I love the bright greens.
Did you make anything this weekend?
