Bindingless Quilted Table Runner

Those batik strips are still getting sewn up. I had a great time playing around with some strips last Monday. And I guess I couldn't stop!

This time I made a table runner out of some pretty blue and beige Island Batik strips. I am always drawn to those cool blues! The strips were each about 3" x 10". Some light. Some dark. But all rich and with such gorgeous designs.

To finish this runner, I used my Bindingless Quilted Placemat Tutorial that I showed last week.

For the topstitching and quilting I used Superior Threads' Bottom Line on top and in the bobbin.

The finished measurement of this runner is approximately 9" x 37". The backing is made from a stash fabric that reminds me of a crackle paint job and is a Northcott blender called Textures #313.

Using the bindingless method gives a sleek finish. It's a lot of fun. And it's quick!
