Paper-Pieced Table Runner

I am going through a slow process of organizing myself and my work area. It was looking like a hurricane hit it. Little by little I am (with my husband’s help) picking up everything. One of the things that I have to do is complete the multitude of unfinished projects (UFOs) that I have. Some are from when I was going to teach and I was in the process of making samples for that class. Others were me trying to learn art quilting and just gave up on it and moved onto another project. Kind of a “Shinny object” disease (new things always catching my eye and interest).

The first one that I am working on completing is this table runner. I designed it and it was suppose to be a class until Covid hit and my plans were altered. So once it is finished I’ll add it to my Etsy list or in one of the shops (haven’t decided that yet).

After I designed the table runner, I print a piece of paper for each square I need. In this case 12.
Then I sew on the pieces of fabric on. Actually, each piece of fabric is sewn on the paper side for accuracy. I’ll have to do a video another date showing you that process.
This is one of the squares with the paper still on the back and all of the fabric sewn.
Now the fun part comes!!! All of the squares are sewn together and I get to pull off every little piece of paper!!!!
It’s all ready to layer, quilt, and add a binding! WooHoo!

Hope you enjoyed this blog! Have a wonderful day!
