Easy table runner - part one
That table runner required more careful cutting as I had scraps.
Here I had new yardage. 4 fat quarters and 2 half yards but I really only needed a quarter.
Wash and iron all fabrics.
I then cut 4 strips that were 2 inches wide.
This is the yellow fabric that will frame the fun squares.
Be sure you have right sides together.
I use a quarter inch seam.
You can just quick piece them all onto one strip.
Cut them apart.
Now we will do the same thing with the other side.
When you quick piece them on a strip, you save a lot of time.
I took a picture so you could visualize the strip piecing method.
Tomorrow, we will do the other sides and the outside sashing.
