This pretty little project is my Spring Meadow Table Runner which I designed for Martingale. Click here to get the Free Spring Table Runner Pattern.
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!
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.
My fave is working on the BOMS and pot holders for gifting.
I like scrappy best.
mi piacciono i mini progetti di cucito e ricamo… li adoro <3
That is an adorable table runner. The book sounds like just the thing for me..quick start to finish!
I would love to win this project it wouls be soooo awesome as I love small projects. My favourite small project would be making baby quilts.
I like making lap quilts , table runners and mug rugs
My first quilting projects were queen size quilts so my small projects now are quilted bags, lap quilts, table runners, pot holders, etc. Most of them were for gifts.
I like the table runner pattern. I’m thinking of making a quilt with that block. I am working on quilts right now. Will have 4 grandchildren graduating from high school before I know it.
My favorite small project depends on the mood – lap quilts, panel wall hangings, totes, dolls. Love them all.
I have made many small purses, Christmas ornaments and a baby quilt. I made a queen size quilt last now it’s time for some potholders and table runners!
It is hard to say what is my favorite small project— but I think it might be small rather than bed sized quilts! Perhaps this is because most of my quilts are big and seem to take forever to complete!
The smaller ones are a true joy to more quickly see the finished project!!!
Oh I just love this table runner – I plan to make it in traditional Easter egg colors – can’t wait! My favorite project (small) to make would be a mug rug.

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!”
I love small items such as table runners or pin cushions…tote bags….things you can get done in an evening or two…save the bigger ones for long weekends..✂️✂️✂️

My favorite small project is a zippered bag. I make various sizes and all seem to be put to good use.
Don’t laugh now, but my favourite small project is stuff like machine darning towels that have small holes, or tackling something that always seems hard before you try it, like taking in my son’s jeans so they are narrow legged instead of flares. It is a quick feeling of accomplishment and my fixit pile is shrinking!
Love the table runner. Small projects includes pillows, pin cushions and small wall hangings.

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 love Table Runners! Quick to make and finish!
Love your blog! Paula

Right now my favorite small project is pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge.
I love making mini quilts. – for gifts, and for myself. I’m working on a mini quilt wall. My most recent love is scrappy. I’ve been busy cutting up 2 1/2″ squares from scraps. I’ve also been indulging myself in buying mini charms … a kind of birthday present to myself :)

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 haven’t quilted it yet, but the quilt top turned out exactly as I wanted. :)
My favorite small project is fabric boxes or baskets.I like to try different patterns and I use the boxes to give gifts in.

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’m a very new quilter who’s been dreaming from afar for several years. Table toppers really appeal to me — they are small enough I won’t have nightmares trying to maneuver them.

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 like to make tote bags
Small wall hangings and paper piecing are my favorite small projects. They are portable and easy to finish.
I like doing table toppers or runners. They are quick and I can experiment with new blocks and not be committed to a whole quilt. Plus, they can usually be done in a weekend….binding and all. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book. It looks like a good one.
Pot Holders! So fun to see them in use at my kid’s & friend’s homes. Table runners are a great way to practice blocks and still create a usable item for the home.
Table runners or Tablemats are easily my favorites. Just something to add a colorful pop to the table top, but is hopefully too small for my family to spill anything on! :)
Just starting to finish baby blankets that I have embroidered! With some news I recently received I think baby bibs and receiving blankets are in order!!!
I like creating things especially designed for someone. For example, I embroidered a Welcome sign in Sign Language for my Sign Language instructor. I was going to make a wall quilt out of it, but she asked for a couch pillow (and loves it!!). I then make an anniversary wall hanging for my son and daughter-in-love. I’m now making a John Deere tractor quilt for my youngest grand daughter.

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. (-:
I like to sew pillows, little stuffed animals or potholders. The latter is the first thing I learned to sew in school (yes, I am dating myself… since the kids today don’t get Home Ec anymore). I always figure I can make potholders, whatever size (quilts, pet beds, pillows… etc.)
Mug mats, potholders, mini wall hanging (scenic) with my leftover scraps, quick baby receiving blankets, table runners for house gifts (this one is adorable and easy-peasy!). I have a nephew and his wife who just bought a new house in Seattle (moved from NYC), so many housewarming gifts are in order now!
I like to make baby quilts and table runners.
Love the purple and yellow…reminds me of crocuses and pansies!! Thanks for small project…I can only make these since I work full time!!
My favorite small projects (currently)would be wallhangings as I am working on a couple that just need the binding and hanging sleeves.
I like to make scrappy lap quilts as they use up the remains from my larger projects & I then donate them to the local rehab facility or the senior center. I must admit that sometimes I give them to a friend too.
I have two favorite kinds of small projects to make. I hope that’s OK. They are doll quilts and mug rugs. They are always very much appreciated when I give or gift them. Thank you for the opportunity to win this special book.

I love making bags of any kind. Lately I’ve been on a downsizing kick and have been making clutches just large enough to ho
