A Summer Table Runner


I found a little bit of time to do some summer sewing. So I made a table runner for my mother-in-law’s birthday. I used the good old quick, quilt-as-you-go Table Runner Tutorial. I love how fast these come together.

Last summer when we were in Maryland I found some cool fabric with a beach and lighthouse theme and knew they were perfect for my mother-in-law who grew up in Maine and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The prints are from the collection Beachcomber by Clothworks. All of the rest of the fabric came from my stash. I love how it all came together. 

I especially love all the sand-colored neutrals. Now I’m in the mood to make a beach-inspired quilt in really subtle neutrals. Hmm…

Plant and pot from Ikea.

    I loved this tutorial. I did three at Christmas with Christmas fabric (two were given as a gift…kept the favourite one for me!). Then I liked it so much I did a Valentine's day one, and I now working on a spring one. I am trying to do for each season! Your tutorial was great!!

    Just today I was loving my current summer table runner made from your tutorial, thinking I needed another! <br /><br />That&#39;s such a fun, quick project.
