Easy Scrappy Table Runner Tutorial

Make this colourful scrappy table runner in a day.

From your stash of scraps make a crazy patchwork square.
Start with a 5 sided small piece of fabric and working clockwise, add strings of any thickness to each side, pressing as you go, until you have a piece big enough to cut out a square measuring 8"

To your trimmed up square - add a strip measuring 2" x 8" to each side.
Then add a strip measuring  2" x 12" to the top and bottom.

Next cut 14 strips measuring 2" x 5" from different coloured scraps of fabric.
Sew 6 together and sew to one side.  Do the same for the other side.

Make up your quilt sandwich and quilt as desired.  I did simple stippling in the center and outer edges and some feathery leaves around the center square - you can do whatever takes your fancy.

Now bind your runner in the usual way.  If you don't know how to bind a quilt with mitred corners, then click here to watch a very helpful video.

Et voila!  Your table runner is complete.  It measures 21" x 12" finished.

See you all next time.
