Spring Table Runner Pattern

This pretty little project is my Spring Meadow Table Runner which I designed for Martingale. Get the Free Spring Table Runner Pattern over here on the Martingale site.  There’s also a great giveaway below, keep reading…

First, let’s talk about fabric selection. For my runner, I chose an unexpected color palette of yellow, pink, purple and gray. I think the little florals and dots give it a nice traditional-meets-modern feeling:

You could try using some bright colors as well, to give it a “summer” feel, or try using holiday fabrics:

When making small, quick projects, there are some quick & easy things that you can do to give them a little “Wow” factor. For example, try fussy cutting the center square of your blocks like I’ve done here:

(Fussy cutting means that you cut out a particular part of the fabric pattern so that it is centered on your quilt patch.)

You can also try adding some fun embellishments. I’ve added rick rack to my table runner- you could also try adding buttons or pom pom fringe for easily adding some extra “cuteness” to your project!

Looking for more quick “lunch-hour” projects?? Check out the Lunch-Hour Patchwork book from Martingale! It has lots of cute projects that you can put together in small chunks of time.

    Your table runner is sweet! I don’t have a favorite little project…I keep starting big ones:) Actually, I take it back, if you count baby quilts as small, they are my favorite.

      My favorite small project is mini hangings – no larger than 14×14 -that I change out frequently. Most are hand embroidered or applique with hand embroidery.

    I love making table runners than can also be wall hangings. They can also be a bed runner for a single or double bed depending on how long they are. If you have a double window they can even be use as a window topper. If you make a slip poker in the back they can even become a bench pillow. So many ideas with a table runner! I just love the star pattern because we can use so many of your embroidery patterns in them.

I am in the process of trying to figure out how to put it together and quilt it. I have been closely eyeballing your mug rugs and have decided that they are to be my next project.

    Like you, I have a new granddaughter who was just 10 months old, Isabella Rose. I have been making her many things, such as sleep sac with arms and hood, putting sleeves of sleeveless onesies, and my latest is making a red corduroy jumper. She is growing so fast, depending on the manufacturer of infant clothing, she’s already into 12-18 month size. Another complication, she has gone from brief crawling to almost walking in less than a month. At this point her Mom is having problems getting her to nap-she wants to be vertical and playing instead of napping. She also already has “cut” six teeth and working on a seventh which sometime the pain keeps her up at night, which makes her “grumpy” during the day when she refuses to nap. I have yet to make her a quilt, but that is next on my list. Ahhh, the joys of motherhood-just glad I’m her “Grammy!”

    Love your tablerunner…and that is what my favorite small project is! I enjoy making for so many reasons: I can usually find enough fabric in my stash to make the top; the backing and the batting can be pieced using smaller scraps I have leftover from other projects; they are easy to make with a monthly or seasonal theme; they are small enough that I can machine quilt on my machine; and they are great practice if I am trying out a new pattern as well as to help me improve my quilting and binding skills.

    I like making table runners. They make great gifts. They have instant grantification when it comes to finishing them. They allow me to make a new block to see if I like it enough to make a full quilt. They brighten a room with color. I can’t think of a reason not to like table runners.

    Since my retirement a few months ago, I have been trying to do more smaller projects because I want to learn new quilting techniques. So far I’ve only done a few pillows, a small wall hanging and now I doing pincushions. By far, my favorite is the wall hanging. I couldn’t find the pattern I wanted to do, and didn’t even know the name of the quilt I had seen. So I took a picture and drew it out. I haven’t quilted it yet, but the quilt top turned out exactly as I wanted. :)

My husband loves the fact that I use up my fabric stash and we don’t spend money on wrapping paper. I look for fabric at thrift stores. Things like sheets, curtains and table linens can all be re-purposed for bags or lining. There is always a stack of bags in my present box. I have been known to trade a meal from my adult daughter for a couple of bags. I get a cooked meal and more time to sew. Win!

    Small projects I like to sew are place mats (one can never have enough) and mug rugs. They are quick, easy and take small pieces of material to finish. It’s so wonderful they way your web site & blog have grown and golly, just look at all the responses.

    My favorite small project is a skinny (2″x 8″), heavy (stuffed with crushed walnut shells) pin cushion. I have made them as gifts for my quilt groups and then sold many more for the same friends and others to in turn use as gifts.

    My favorite small projects are always placemats! They go together quickly, cheer up the kitchen, and sooth my soul when I need a fix from something DONE! I almost always work them quilt-as-you-go, so when the piecing is done, everything is done.

    My Favorite small project is a Table Runner/Wall Hanging. I usually put a hanger on the back on the Table Runner so I can also use it as a Wall Hanging. Some of the reason this is my Favorite is I still haven’t gotten to make a Full Quilt but I am working on it with a Quilt Along with NQC so I might actually have a Quilt. Only took me 3 years to get my nerve up to do the Quilt.

    I love small quilts. I first started quilting using “little quilts all through the house” in the 80s. I use them for table rugs, wall hangings, accent pieces. I have been making full size quilts for the last several years, sending them out to be quilted. But my new years challenge was to learn quilting on my domestic machine. I am about 2 weeks into it. And a new fresh book with fresh ideas would be an inspiration.

    I am totally enjoying my newest passion, quilting Mug Rugs. after many years of being away from sewing except for the never ending ending, I bought a new modern sewing machine to complement my 47-year-old she.. I have made a monthly fee for the last few months and have made A couple birthday gifts. Had fun making bowl cozies for gifts and I am in the process of making baby bibs and baby burp clause for a few baby showers. This practice with my new machine is my precursor to making A quilt for my king-size bed. I am having all the old feelings of comfort return as I said at my machine.

    I love the colors of your runner. Very springlike. I really appreciate how you explain yourself when you use terms people may not be familiar with. My crocuses are popping up, but we are supposed to get snow this afternoon. Hope they survive. My favorite quick projects are things that take no more than half hour to do. Like making plastic bag holders.

    So many to choose from . . . Where do I begin? I like working on small projects and seeing them completed in a short period of time. Little bags for the grandkids, tabletoppers, towels. Then there’s also small makeup type bags, coasters, mug rugs, baby quilts. The list goes on. (-:

    It’s hard to choose a favorite small project because I like so many of them — table runners, zip pouches, pot holders, etc. Whenever I’m between big projects or I just want a fun little project I will make one of those things.

    Having small jobs to do and complete in a day or two is great. Sometimes we spend so much time on one project we can feel like we aren’t getting anything completed fast enough. So if we take a small break and complete just one small thing it makes us feel good about our own work. Knowing we can complete the big ones with the same feeling of a job well done.

    First I want to say I love your blog and have learned so much from them. I love to make table runners, small purses, aprons etc. With my husband in rehab I can work on these small projects while I set with him. At home I love all types of patchwork quilting.

    Hi! Here I am with my comment–way down here on the bottom. I must be number 3000 by now. It took me forever to reach the ‘Post a Comment’. I make 1″ 9-patches and save them for when I need a gift bag, wrist purse, or mug rug, table runner, placemat, or cell phone holder, notebook, checkbook cover — whatever. So easy and makes a little giftie special. Little 9-patches come in handy for fundraisers, charity quilts–no end to what you can make with little pieces. Fast and fun!

    My favorite small project is a pillow. Sometimes I do a small embroidery project or a wool applique project. A pillow makes a great gift because you can make it just for them with a design they like. I saw this book at my local quilt shop. It is so sweet! Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.

    I love quilting in general. I guess I make th most of table runners. Some of them go to a cat rescue in Ohio called Friends of Feline rescue Center. They use them to raise funds to support the cats. This book would offer me more ideas to raise more money.

    My favorite small project is to do red work (or blue or green OR whatever) of a holiday, then try new border ideas around it. I use front and back sides – example Halloween on one side and flip it over for Christmas. That way it’s less storage and I don’t have to dig through my trunk to change it out. It is not a quick project, but really worth while.

    My favorite small project is the soup bowl cozy’s. Love to pick out fabrics that are samples of someone’s personality/favorite hobby and surprise them with it. So much fun to watch my husband give one of his best friends on a week ago…little did we know his friend had just really burned his fingers the day before getting something really hot out of the microwave. He was thrilled!!
    These are quick and fun!

    My favourite small project is sitting with my granddaughters who draw and colour their own designs and helping them turn it from a sketch to a finished project.
    My own small projects are quilt art. Using something like an old ‘Pears soap’ picture and recreating it. Using fabric, watercolor pencils, used teabags to age the fabric by dabbing it on where I need it. Jut sit and loose myself.

    I’ve actually never done a small project. All of my projects are generally bed-sized quilts. I’ve toyed with the idea, but it just hasn’t happened yet. Maybe this book will be my inspiration!

    This posting came at the perfect time. I’m always looking for 12 1/2″ blocks. Every year, there is a group of relatives that make this size block & my niece gathers them & sews them into a quilt to raffle at our annual Family Reunion. Only restrictions is the size, any style block is accepted, but we usually decide upon a color theme to make them cohesive. This year, the colors are brown, pink & grey – perfect to use on this star. Thank you for sharing this pattern!
