Prepping For an Art Fair

I've been pretty busy getting ready for my first outdoor art fair. I've ordered a commercial pop-up canopy and I've we've been going to antique sales to find props for by booth. So far, I've purchased a stainless steel egg crate and a metal shopping cart. I can't wait to see if I can make them into anything fun.

I've been trying to make some extra table runners to sell so I thought I would try to efficiently load them on the longarmer. I sewed 5 different backings together and loaded them on the machine. 

Then I cut the batting to size for the first table runner and quilted it onto the backing. I just rolled the finished table runner around the quilt frame bar until I got to the second backing. I quilted each table runner this way using a different quilting design for each one. It was so fun and worked out great. 

All that was left to do after they were quilted was to cut them apart and bind them. It was easy peasy. 

I think I will use this technique again with Christmas table runners.
