Quilt As You Go has been the most requested technique when I have asked for tutorial ideas, so without further ado here is a super easy Quilt As You Go Table Runner. I have a couple more ideas for Quilt As You Go projects planned, and they will get a little harder, but this table runner is a great place for us to start.
Making our Table Runner using the Quilt As You Go method means, we sew the pieces together, and at the same time we are also quilting, so we do two steps in one, making it a quick project.
These instructions are to make a Quilt as You Go Table Runner that measures 12″ x 40½”. You can make your table runner any size you would like. Just start off by making the backing and batting 2″ larger than your desired finished size.
For this project, I used various fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics.
QUILT AS YOU GO TABLE RUNNER CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS:
(21) 2½” x 14″ Strips for Top
(1) 15″ Width of Fabric for Backing
(1) ¼ Yard for Binding
(1) 14″ x 44″ Piece of batting
Note: For the Top fabric I used seven different fabrics. I cut a 2½” width of fabric piece and from that cut three 2½” x 7″ pieces
