Tablerunner Project with Tutorial

Mary Englebreit Friends and Flowers for Moda fabrics have (finally) made there way across the sewing table, and I LOVE them! So vintage looking and cheerful! In the works from this fabric line so far: a baby blanket and tablerunner.

Pics of the oober deliciousness.

To make both: 1 jelly roll and the usual "sashing/backing/binding" fabric

Cut 5" segments (needed 72 for the runner, 144 for the baby blanket)

Sew together into long strips of 8 mixing the fabrics at random

Mix the strips until you like the arrangement offset for a layered brick look.

Cut 2 1/2" pieces off of every other row and stitch to the other side of the strip.

Sew strips together (9 total) and square runner with a rotary cutter.

Cut backing fabric to size, baste, quilt, and enjoy!

Approximate finished size: 18" x 36"

My baby quilt will be posted later this week! Happy quilting!
