Today's featured bundle is  Glad Tidings  - this is such a pretty, traditional bundle of red and green!  I wanted to share a quick and easy project featuring today's bundle! This is one of my go-to table runners when I want a quick and easy project!

33" x 17"


Supplies needed: 

Cutting: 

(Reserve green stripe for binding)

From red floral:
  • 4 - 7.5" x 7.5" (A)
From green:
  • 4 - 4" x 4" (B)
From red swiss dot:
  • 4 - 4" x 4" squares (B)
From red diamond: 
  • 4 - 4" x 4" squares (B)
From Christmas tree print: 
  • 4 - 4" x 4" squares (B)
From background:
  • 6 - 1.5" x 7.5" strips (C)
  • 3 - 1.5" x 31.5" strips (D)
  • 2 - 1.5" x 17.5" strips (E)

Take your B squares and make four 4-patches.  Should measure 7.5" x 7.5" 



Lay your blocks out, and sew a sashing strip to the right side of each block - except the last block:


Sew a D strip in between the rows and on top and bottom.  Press. 


Sew an E strip on the left and right sides and press.  Should measure 33" x 17"


That's it - now you are ready to baste, quilt and bind! 



For a coordinating project with this fun table runner, we made some fun Tea Towel kits!


Tea towels are one of my favorite items to give during the holidays!  Handmade gifts are the best gifts in my opinion - and now is the time to start working on them! 


Tea Towel Kit
 I love doing holiday ones because you can give them a little early - and the recipient can enjoy them all through the holiday season! 




I hope you enjoyed these fun projects! Be sure to come back next week for our final bundle/project!

Talk to you soon,
