Table Runner Palooza

I really enjoy making table runners.  They're quick weekend projects that equally feed my love of design and finish projects.  I was looking through my closet the other day and began to count the number of runners I've made, but never sold and I was so surprised!  Way too many!

So, rather than list them a few at a time, season by season, I decided to celebrate my runners with Table Runner Palooza - a giant table runner and pattern sale!  Over the next few weeks, I'll be introducing my runners and patterns and sharing my design process here on the blog as I list them for sale in my etsy shop.  I hope you enjoy!

First up is my Two-Fat-Quarter-Table-Topper:

Back in 2009, when my mom and I went on our first shop hop, I won two fat quarters from Moda's Allspice Tapestry line from one of the local quilt shops.  I really liked these prints, but didn't have enough money in shop-hop-budget to purchase coordinating pieces.  These sat on my shelf for a couple of months until I was looking for a weekend project and decided to sit down and figure out how to make the biggest table topper -- including binding -- possible, using solely these two fat quarters.  The finished piece measures 21.5" square.

The table topper is on sale for $16.50 (regularly $32.99) in my etsy shop. And just in case I forgot, I wrote down the directions so I didn't have to figure out all the math again.  The pattern is also now available for sale in my etsy shop ... in case you don't want to have to figure out the math either.
