A Quick and Easy Table Runner

My mom thinks I am magic and can do anything. Isn’t that what mothers are supposed to think? She called me yesterday and said, “Tracy, we are feeding the senior missionaries this next Monday. Would you happen to have time to make me a green table runner?”

Lol! — No mom, I really don’t have time, but for you, I will make time.❤️❤️

I have a wonderful book of patterns for table decorations called “Table Please” by Art to Heart. I believe the designer is Nancy Halvorsen.

I scrounged through my green stash scraps and started cutting and sewing. The background was just one big disappering 9 patch of 9” squares.

I sewed the nine squares together and then I cut the nine patch in 1/4s and sewed three of them back together in a row. That’s it! Background done!

Next was a very easy, but super cute appliqué. The pattern was in the book. ADORABLE!

I used a super easy press and peel appliqué method to anchor my clovers down and then did a small blanket stitch around them.

All in all my mom was right. I did have time because I was able to make this festive clover runner in an evening. I bet you could too!!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day. Please feel to comment or follow along. I am always happy to hear from you!
