today I am excited to share the first of several projects using Festive Forest…the next fun fabric line from Tamara Kate Design!!
click here to read about the fun fabrics I received…do you have a favorite??
today’s fun tutorial is for making this tablerunner…
you will need six fat quarters or yardage…one print for the binding, one print for the background
a small piece of batting and some backing fabric
I cut two 3.5 x 4.5 rectangles from each of the four prints
I cut a 3.5 inch WOF strip from the background print and then sub-cut into rectangles 2 inches, 3 inches and 4 inches
I used five 3.5 x 4 inch rectangles, five 3.5 x 2 inch rectangles and six 3.5 x 3 inches of the background
I arranged the print rectangles in a staggered setting achieved with the different size background rectangles
sew background rectangles to each side of the print rectangle
each row finishes at 9.5 x 3.5
I pressed the background toward the print rectangle and then pressed the seam open when joining the rows together
here is my finished top
the next step is to layer runner top, batting and backing together to begin quilting
quilt as desired and trim
I did narrow curvy lines using my walking foot
sew two 2.5 inch binding strips into one long piece to bind the runner
sew binding onto runner and either machine or hand-sew it to the back
your finished runner is about 9.5 x 25 inches and ready to use!
this runner is currently available in my etsy shop

hope you enjoyed this fun tutorial…be watching for the next Festive Forest project soon…
