Bargello Table Runner

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!

Bargello Table Runner

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!!!!
