Red and Yellow Table Runner

Special thanks to my sweet friends at Online Fabric Store for sponsoring this post and providing me with some beautiful fabrics for Spring!  As always all opinions are 100% my own!

This Spring, my mission is to bring color back into our home.  Long gone are the days of pretty Christmas decorations that once filled the bare spaces in the house, and I honestly haven’t had a ton of time since then to really decorate the house.  All of our furniture is dark brown leather or wood, and I LOVE it, but we need to add pops of color in our decor to keep our house from looking so, well…brown!

In our living room and kitchen {it’s pretty open concept and the two rooms just sort of flow into each other}, my husband and I have decided on two colors we’d like to add.

Red and Yellow

{and I’m talking BRIGHT red and BRIGHT yellow…no dark tones allowed!!}

So, I decided to take on a simple project with some of the fabrics shown above, a brand new table runner for our farmhouse kitchen table .

Obviously sizes will vary, depending on your table length.  I choose to not let my runners hang over the edges of my table because with two little ones under two, that’s just asking for them to get pulled off the table every five seconds.

I used five blocks of red and white prints and 4 strips of a yellow and white print.  Each red block is approximately 19″ x 10″ and the yellow strips are 19″ x 2″.  With those measurements, my runner ended up being about 18″ x 56″ after you consider seam allowances.

I simply alternated between the red/white fabrics and sewed a yellow/white strip of the Sydney print between each block.  The back of the table runner is one solid piece of the yellow/white Embrace print.  To assemble the entire table runner, place the top and bottom pieces together, right sides facing each other, sew around the entire edge leaving about a 3 inch gap at one corner in order to flip the runner right side out.  I then sewed a top stitch around the entire runner to finish it off.

    Awesome combo of fabrics! Think if I put a table runner on, my house of boys would get it to leave their random clutter off the table?! ;) I won’t hold my breath, but I would love to make one anyway :)
