After I posted about sewing in Nebraska, I realized I never shared the table runner project that Selestia and I made way back this winter when she visited us in South Dakota. Oh, to get behind on my quilting! Drat!
We both bought charm packs to make this zig zag table runner. The video is very, very helpful.
Be sure to watch all the way to the end though! We didn’t – thinking we knew what we were doing – and missed the important step of putting a small cut in each corner so the runner will lay flat when turned. DON’T SKIP THAT PART.
The quilted runner helps with:
- farmhouse dusting – the NEVER ending chore
- holding the baby books in place
This project was about a half day adventure, so I think it is perfect for a weekend sewing project with a friend or sister! And, this is the first finished portion of the nursery besides the rocker I recovered. Books are definitely going to be a priority in this nerdy family, so I had to find a spot for them.
What projects do you like to sew with friends and family?
Do you know of any charm-pack friendly table runners?
Do you think Selestia’s hair is just the craziest? (I do!)
