    Want to make a table runner any ideas?

    So I guess my title says it all. I need to make it scrappy and would love for it to be spring "looking". Any ideas? I do not have a lot of big pieces. I may do a simple 4 patch? But then maybe something with stars? Maybe both? Oh help Can't make up my mind. Thanks

    I made a few of those 10 minute table runners for Christmas presents. I got the idea from somebody's post. You can google 10-minute table runner. Super easy, super-fast. I don't know why you couldn't use your scraps sewn together in one big piece, then cut to use with say a solid for the runner.....look it up.
    Hope you'll post pics whatever you decide.

    Make several scrappy blocks you like and join those with/without sashings. I'm going to make some scrappy baskets with bright colors for an easter runner , maybe same patterns maybe not. It will be one of a kind anyway.

    Made two easy table runners from Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorials, the Scrap Buster and Zig Zag. You can make both these in one day from cutting to binding.
