I think this might be one of my most favorite projects yet. I love the colors and the fabrics and how soft they are! I made this quilted table runner and set of napkins for my sister-in-law for Christmas (yes, I have a total of 5 sister-in-laws, kinda fun).
The fabrics were dreamy to work with, I chose the Etsuko Furuya double gauze Birds in Purple from fabricworm.com and ordered the shot cottons from PurlSoho (I got a yard and half of Lipstick and the same of Apple). I also had the blue polka dot from Patty Young’s latest Flora & Fauna line (from MaterialGal on Etsy), it just happend to coordinate nicely!
I used this tutorial over at Sew, Mama, Sew! for the napkins. I ended up with hardly any leftover fabric, maybe a fat quarter or so from the Furuya fabric left (excited to add it to some clothing item for the girls — the double gauze is dreamy).
The best part of this project was that I ripped all my pieces, yes ripped! I was reading this tutorial before making the table runner and decided I should just go for it since I was running late on time and wanted it straight on the grain without a lot of fuss. It was awesome!
