We had company this past Memorial weekend and after seeing some decorating one of our quilter friends did for her Easter company, Donna and I decided that we needed to kick-it-up a notch for our Memorial Day company.
After decorating the LR, DR, and sunroom, we noticed that we did not have a small table runner for our kitchen bar area. So…. I decided to whip one up. I pulled out or R-W-B fabric container and found some pineapple blocks that Donna had made when she was teaching a class on the pineapple block.
We like to make dual sided table runners/toppers so we can get extra usage out of them, to I used some umbrella fabric and ship fabric from our stash) to make the reversed side of the table runner and then did some straight lined quilting through all the layers (RWB – batting – umbrella/ship).
The key to making a dual sided table runners is to make sure that the binding fabric will look good on both sides.
It was a quick and fun project and I really like both sides of this table/counter runner. We’re also ready for the 4th of July!
