Spring Table Runner

Last week I showed you a table runner I made for my mother-in-law, and this week I have the one I made for my mother.

Like the previous one, I used all fabrics from my stash, most left over from previous projects. The design is a simple window pane design with white sashing. I used freeform wavy lines for the quilting.

I used random wavy-line quilting.

The backing is a fabric I had purchased for another project online, but when it came it didn’t quite match the other fabrics, so I’m especially glad to have found it a home.

I’m happy this backing finally found a home.

It’s a nice simple quilt, but I’m quite happy about how the peach and emerald green look beside one another. Hopefully this will get lots of use.

I really like how these colours work together.

  1. I also love the simple quilt designs, and this one is really lovely. I cannot believe that you are a beginner sewer, this looks so beautifully executed!

    1. Thank you! Glad you like my work. But I’m not really a beginning sewer. I’ve been sewing since I was 10. I do still consider myself a beginning quilter though. I can still count all my quilting projects on two hands.
