Summer Table Runner {w/ Riley Blake's Sugar-n-Spice Fabrics}

I love this fabric collection from Riley Blake. It is called Sugar-n-Spice. Being that I have all boys, I really couldn't use it to make something for them. :)
 So...I made a little table runner from it. I used most of the turquoise and red fabrics, along with some fabrics I already had on hand.
I also used some jumbo ric-rac.
I really liked the size of this table runner, so I made this one almost the same size.

 I cut my fabrics about 15 inches long, and 4-5 inches wide. I have a round pedestal table so this size works well for me. I cut about 12 pieces for the table runner. I simply sewed these together to make one long strip of fabric. I added a light weight batting, and  fabric for the back. I sewed right sides together, left one end open, flipped it, pressed it, and top stitched it. That's it. I really like the bright colors in this collection.
Thanks for reading! Happy Summer!

It is so much more motivating to have a clean table when you have a fresh, clean, new table runner. Thanks for the inspiration, I think I will have to make one of these today!!
