Valentine Table Runner

Finished size 12" x 36"

Hi everyone, this is Connie from Freemotion by the River and I am back with another fast and easy table runner for you using the GO! Qube Mix & Match 12” Block set and the applique Feather die. I am really having a lot of fun using the Qube in its handy self-contained storage system.

Materials Needed:

I used batiks from the Island Batik Lavish collection.

Red – ¼ yard
Orange – ¼ yard
Light Peach – ¼ yard
Red – ¼ yard – 3 – 2 ½” strips for binding
Backing – 42” x 18”
Batting – 42” x 18”
Small piece of fusible adhesive for applique

I recently moved into a new studio and I am using 2 Ikea Algot storage systems to hold my GO! Big Electric fabric Cutter. It works great!
