Mystery Project Three {Lucky Table Runner}


Hi there! I am here to share my final green Mystery Project.  This last project is as simple as it gets! I decided on a simple table runner.  I love easy projects like this table runner, it takes no time at all and it's great for those leftover scraps!  


 I embellished mine with some fun shamrocks, but you could leave those off if you prefer.  Or you could add more and scatter them about your runner! This is where you take your creativity and run with it! 




I quilted this with a simple meandering pattern.  I didn't go over my shamrocks, because I stitched those down before with a simple straight stitch, but everything else I meandered.  I also did a scrappy binding and my mom was kind enough to bind it by hand for me.  :)
Finished Size: 12" x 33"

Alright, get out the remaining of your Mystery Bundle and let's get started!






Supplies:

Strips cut anywhere from 1.5" wide to 3" wide x 13" long.
Fusible Web (for shamrocks)
4" x 12" piece of background fabric (Print 8)
Shamrock Pattern - Download HERE
Backing - I used print 5 for my background piece.  I had a piece just big enough for my backing, if you don't have a big enough piece left, then you can piece your backing!
Binding: 2.5" strips -- I had to do a scrappy binding so I just pieced a few of my longer strips together.


Step 1: Cut lots of strips.  I cut mine anywhere from 1.5" wide to 3" wide.  I made sure all my strips were at least 13" long.


Step 2:  Sew them together.  I sewed mine together until I had a 33" piece.  The only reason I chose this length is because that's how big my backing piece was.  So if you have a bigger backing piece, then you can make yours longer, if that's what you prefer! I also trimmed mine down to 12" wide by the time I was done sewing them all together.  I did this so I knew I had nice straight edges.


Step 3: Iron the fusible web onto your background fabric.  Cut out shamrock pattern, and then trace onto your background fabric and cut out three shamrocks.  Iron your shamrocks on.  I chose to do mine on the bottom right corner.



Step 4: Stitch around your shamrocks.  I decided to to a plain straight stitch, but you could do an appliqué stitch if you prefer or even hand stitch around them


Step 5: You are now ready to baste, quilt and bind with your preferred methods!


I hope you enjoyed stitching along with me!! :) I would love to see your projects, please email me or use #sewingwithfwfabricstudio on instagram!
