I recently made a new table runner for summer using my Sunnyside Ave fabric collection. It’s a quick, patchwork table runner perfect for using charm squares (5″ x 5″).
I used a simple Broken Dishes pattern of contrasting lights and darks half-square triangles. (You can find a Broken dishes HST tutorial here to show you how to make and lay out the blocks.) I started with 5″ x 5″ squares. The half-square triangle blocks are squared-up to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ for a finished 4″ x 4″ block.
This table runner took 18 dark squares and 18 light squares, just under a 1/4 yard of fabric for binding, and finished at 16″ x 36″.
It’s been fun to see more projects made featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics! I love seeing what other people create with fabric I’ve designed. (It’s still a bit surreal actually.) Here are a bunch more projects featuring Sunnyside Ave fabrics, including some fun, free tutorials!
I love that it’s a simple, classic apron AND it’s available in multiple sizes! (I think these apple prints are perfect for aprons!)
Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction made these cute and sturdy pouches using her Double Pocket Pouch pattern.
Amanda of Jedi Craft Girl created this fun, vintage-inspired quilt pattern called Sunny Days. This fat-quarter-friendly pattern is available in her Etsy shop.
Sachiko of Tea Rose Home created a fun quilted bag tutorial featuring the greens and royals from the Sunnyside Ave collection.
Gemia of Phat Quarters made this adorable tank and shorts ensemble for her daughter. So cute!
You can find other projects and tutorials featuring Sunnyside Ave here and here. The colors are perfect for cheerful, summer-y and patriotic projects!
