A Simple Rail Fence Tablerunner

I was in the mood  to make something Red, White, and Blue out of scraps, and loved the rail fence tablerunner I had seen on the blog, Run 'n Stitch, earlier this month, so decided to give that a try.  Check out Kathi's runner HERE.

These are the scraps that came out to play!


I had enough of the red text fabric, Kona white, and the robins on blue to make eight 6.5 inch blocks.


The navy blue with white dots and the red, white, and blue stripes became the backing and binding.


A quick and simple project - it measures about 12 x 24.


Now I'm all set for the season!


Sharing at Quilting is more fun than Housework for Oh Scrap!

That is a really cute "seasonal" runner and yet unique in the fact that it is not more flags and stars. I love it! I have nothing against flags and stars, just that sometimes all mine compete with each other. I like the variety!

I love rail fence and that top is fantastic! I love the bird print!!! Have a wonderful day!!!

Kate said...

Love the robin fabric! It makes for a fun, seasonal table runner that says summer, more than it says 4th of July.

I like how the fabrics in your runner can extend the quilt beyond the holiday. The robin fabric is amazing!

There are large DrEAMis but these small fast ones are just SO satisfying, right? Great little topper! Thanks for linking up!
