I just realized I never blogged about my finished Bargello Table Runner.
It was a free tutorial hosted by Katie of Katie’s Quilting Corner.
I used 2 1/2″ strips I had leftover from the Double Wedding Ring Quilt I made back in Alaska.
I quilted it first doing ruler work to create the diagonal lines for movement. Then I did back & forth freehand squiggles to further emphasis movement.
I bound it with leftover binding from the Double Wedding Ring Quilt.
It’s much longer than Katie’s pattern called for (I think I did an entire extra set of strips) because I like long tablerunners (I personally don’t care for table runners that don’t go off the edge of the table).
It was easy & a good “no brainer” project.
Best of all it looks pretty on our table!
Linking up with Heather at Sew Modern Monday &
Remember when I told you about Katie’s Bargello QAL?
I decided I needed to do a tablerunner (because, you know, I have nothing else on my plate right now). Since a tablerunner is fairly small, I decided to dive into my scraps & see what I could use. I came up with these fabrics that were already cut into 2.5″ strips!!!
Then I sewed them together into long strips & I opted for a total of 3 sets as I like my tablerunners long:
Then I folded them in half & sewed my segments into tubes:
Now for the next bit, I don’t have any photos for you (sorry!), but then you cut the tubes into 2.5″ strips & then with some ripping you get strips that you can put together & eventually they look like this:
I only have a few more strips left to sew onto the runner (I decided to use all my strips) so it’s almost ready to quilt! Wohoo!
This has been a great project so far & I’m getting an itch to make more bargello quilts. Ahhhhh, so many exciting projects to make eventually!!!!
