Springy Table Runner

Hi there!  I had a fun and productive weekend, and the best part is – there’s no school today!  Friday was the end of the quarter, so the lovely teachers have a day to work without students.

I finished piecing a quilt, and prepped the backing, made from this beautiful collection – Botany by Lauren and Jessi Jung, I believe it will be out in March.  The colors are fresh and scream spring!  Before I finished my quilt top, I had already planned a quick table runner for my living room!

Honestly, I think I spent about an hour total on this piece.  I even stitched the binding on the machine – not as hard as everyone makes it out to be!  The only thing I would do different next time is cut the binding smaller – I was working with jelly roll strips.

 Hopefully my table will stay clear so I can admire it all the time!  I hope you had a good weekend!

I need to go wade through all the giveaway comments and announce them – cross your fingers :)

    I've never done any machine quilting, but this even looks easy enough for me! LOL!

    Really cute! I love straight line quilting too. Also love the new header picture, I'm glad to see mine is not the only machine with lint in it!

    Great runner! I need to make one for our dining room table but can't decide on fabric….as usual. :)
    I am still in love with your wall color!

    Lovely little runner!! Glad you found it a breeze to machine-stitch the binding… It has always been a disaster for me. And hand-stitching gives me an excuse to sit and watch a couple of movies while still being "productive". ;-)

    I looooooove it!

    Love the table runner! How do you get the quilting so even? What fabrics were they? I'd love to make one for myself…

    Wow, you made this beauty in under an hour!? You're amazing! Lovely new fabrics too! I've never tried machine sewing the entire binding before but it sounds like a great time saver!
