Completed Table Runner

I completed this table runner using a pattern from Dragonfly Fiberart called "You've Been Framed". The pattern requires the purchase of 6 fat quarters to make the blocks and there's enough left over to make an extra table runner.

I made the original table runner for the quilt shop and it is on display to help promote a class where this table runner will be made; there are also table runner kits available at the shop using the selected fabrics from the sample.

It was a very simple runner to make. I only took me about an hour to cut the rectangles and sew the blocks together. I added the sashing and borders then starched and pressed the finished top well. I used Warm N' Natural batting then pressed the backing.

I pinned the layers together and then I chose to free-motion quilt it using an all-over meander. I trimmed it up then made the binding. The entire process was completed in about half a day.

After that, all that was left to do was to pin then sew on the binding. I sewed the binding to the front of the table runner then I waited until my husband came home from physical therapy. Those sessions make him sore so he likes to relax in front of the television to rest. That was a great time to hand-stitch the binding to the back of the runner. So happy to have this finished. Even though it is not really my style, it is very pretty.
