Criss Cross Table Runner

Ahhh, I finally finished something!  My sewing room has been a cluttered mess because I have been cutting I-Spy fabrics for the last week.  But we'll get to that in a minute.  First, let's talk about this table runner.  

My cute helper, who's hair is always sticking up, wanted his picture taken.  I meandered the outside border with a small stipple.  The inside area got a large cross hatch following the lines of the squares.

Pattern is just 2.5 inch strips cut to 4.5 inches to make a block and then set them on point.  I was trying to get the quilt to fit the top of this table that has seen better days.  Now I just need to get my oldest to sand and restain it for me. 

While I was in the process of making the table runner, I bought and received about 30 yards of i-spy fabric.  I already had at least 40 yards in my closet so I set to work cutting them up and making quilt kits for the Quilt  Ministry.

We plan to make quilts with 120 blocks (or 80 blocks with a 1 inch black sashing).  These are cut 5 x 5.  It seemed to take forever, but we made over 22 kits.  I even saved 2.5 inch strips if there were some leftover to make a couple quilts from those.

I do have some leftover squares for sale if you are interested in purchasing them.  I have several of each set size and postage is included.  If you buy a set there will be no duplicates, but if you buy 2 sets there will be.  I am also including 3 or 4 extras for you.  The pictures are very close to what you will get, if not exactly.  There might be a couple of squares that are different.  If you are interested just leave me a comment or email me.

20 - $6

30 - $8

40 - $10

  1. Your table runner looks gorgeous on the table. I really like the cross hatching. And what great helpers you have. Those kits will be put to good use.

  2. What a sweet face peeping over the top of your table runner. Perfect size for your table. I really like the colors.

    I would like to get two of your 40 I Spy squares. I have a friend who makes and donates I Spy quilts for her hospital's gift shop, I know she will love to have some new fabrics mix in with her collections.
