Eames-Inspired Summer Stripe Table Runner by Lish Doret

Here’s a fun table runner you can make out of Windham Fabrics Colonies Solids. The length of the table runner is almost 60″ in length and you can
customize your runner to the size of your table – just keep adding fabric! Once
you’ve cut your fabric the assembly couldn’t be easier. Pour a glass of wine,
put in a DVD and get ready to make a fast table runner.

Cutting Guide – All pieces are 40″ in length

  • Purple and Orange: 5″ wide
  • Yellow and Green: 3″ wide
  • Red: 1.25″

Sew your long pieces of fabric
together with a 1/4″ seam. Alternate ends when sewing together to keepthe long
pieces straighter.

Once your long pieces are put
together, add a green rectangle (18″ wide and 10″ tall) to either end.

Pair a coordinating piece of backing
fabric to the piece, cut to size. Sew wrong sides together, turn out, and top
stitch close. Add additional top stitching as you like. I stitched in the ditch
for each long bar of color.

Easy, eh?

Enjoy and Happy Quilting!
