The Best Souvenirs!

The best souvenirs from a vacation are the ones you can bring home and use over and over again!  I took the four Finger Lakes wine fabrics (they are really from Timeless Treasures!) and designed a simple table runner out of them, which I finished up last week but have just now had a chance to write a post about.

I made three simple blocks based on 2 1/2 inch dimensions and used bits of all four fabrics in them.   Each block finished at 12 inches.

I used up the leftovers to make a scrappy binding.

And, you can't see it, but the batting is even scrappy, leftover pieces, sewn together.  I loved using up a couple smaller pieces of batting for this small project!

To top it all off, the case of wine we ordered arrived just the other day.  Cheers!


  1. Those fabrics are great, I like Timeless Treasures too. I totally agree, the best souvenirs are fabrics!

  2. How wonderful to now have something to remind you of a vacation. That is a great idea! I really like the design of the runner. Enjoy the wine!

  3. Oh my goodness! I just love this! I know several wine lovers (I just might be included in that category LOL). . . I am going to have to find some of that fabric! It is fabulous :) I really like how the grape fabric looks on the binding.

  4. Awesome to see your runner all sewn up so quick! It looks great...ahh, so does the vino! :-)
