green

This is now one of my "GO TO" patterns
 when I need to give a simple gift.
My friend likes green.
Green it is!!!!
It's so simple....
And so lovely.
I have a little tutorial here.

This time I had the perfect backing.
Heavy weight remnant
left over from someone's redecorating.

Look at that!
It's even been scotchguarded!!
Perfect for a busy table, huh?

Putting right sides together I stitched around...
Leaving an opening to turn it right side out!!!
NO batting.
Just that heavy weight fabric for the backing.
In the past I've also used flannel.

I did some topstitching/quilting lines
Using a larger stitch length!!!


Ta Da!!!
Have a happy Tuesday!
Hope you get to sew even just a little bit!
It'll do you good.
It might do someone else some good too!!
;)

  5. You've got the 4-patch blitz going! Runners are sew easy and add just the right little zing of color and decor. I'm working on a split 9-patch today.

  8. I have the hardest time getting my edges nice when I pillowcase a top. So I usually just put on a binding

  9. What a great idea. I even have some heavier weight fabric hanging around in my stash. I want to start making a few table runners right away.

  10. That's my favorite way of finishing table runners; no bindings or anything. The runner looks great!
