Table Runners

I’ve been wanting to whip up some table runners for awhile as I’d bought some Michael Miller panels that I thought would make an interesting and colourful Christmas centre piece…

I did this first one as a quilt as you go method. I used fabric adhesive to sandwich the backing, batting and large bird panel. Then I sewed the strips on one at a time in a row, essentially quilting the strips as I went. If you google “quilt as you go tutorials” you can find many tutorials on this type of method. It was a fun way to do it but I don’t think it was necessarily faster…



I was happy to use this pinky coloured Christmas fabric up too for the back, very pretty. I like the bright non-traditional colours. I think I might keep one for myself!…




The panel strip also had some lovely smaller designs that I cut up and centred as the front of a second runner. I pieced the front first for this one and then sandwiched in the traditional fashion…



I love the backing fabric too. I’ve also had it for awhile and it’s been waiting for the right project…


I have more panels so I’m definitely going to make a few more. I’m in love with this mix of colours!
