Strippy Runner Tutorial

I have had many, many requests and questions about the pattern I use to make my strippy runners.
Strippy Runner
I don't have a pattern and kind of just "wing it", but I wrote a tutorial over the weekend.
You can find it here.
Please email me if you have any questions. It was kind of hard to write.
Strippy Runner
If you want to make this particular runner, I've assembled a little kit, which includes all the fabric except the backing and batting. It's in the store for $6.75.

Pin It!

  18. Hi Anina

    Thanks for the tutorial. I especially liked the tip for the edge-of-the-table line-up. It's those little things that make all the difference.

    Cheers! Shari

    PS - love your fabrics!

  19. I was so inspired that I made a runner top tonight following your tutorial and am trying to decide how to quilt it. What color thread did you use? I can't see it at all on the colored sections. Part of my dilemma is based on thread/fabric colors.

  20. I have always loved and admired your table runner! I think I even have some of those same fabrics in the sample pictured today (Erin McMorris fabrics?). Thanks so much for sharing with us! This is another great project for me to "practice" doing my own machine quilting too.
