I've wanted to make a quilted table runner like this for a long time. I used strips of my favorite repro fabrics, and randomly sewed them together until I reached 5 feet long. Funny thing is that it didn't turn out as wonky as I had hoped. I guess that's what happens when you don't measure anything but the final length, but that's OK by me.
I plan to use it to cover my triple dresser in my bedroom.
I used a lot of the same fabrics I used on my bed quilt, so it will match nicely.
I'm taking this whole week off - yippee! Planning some fun with the kids, and lots of sewing and crafting!
