Materials to Make the Give Thanks Table Runner

Step 1: Fussy Cutting Letter?

To fussy cut my letters I used Dritz Clear Template Plastic. Cut out a 5 3/4″;x 6 1/2″; rectangle from your plastic and place on top of each letter you need to fussy cut. With a fabric marking pen trace your template onto the fabric and cut out all your letters.

Sew your letters together spelling out “;Give Thanks.”; Sew two 5 3/4″; x 6 1/2″; rectangles from Fabric B to each side of? the word “;Give”; and one 5 3/4″; x 6 1/2″; rectangle to each side of the word “;Thanks.”; Sew both rows together. Use your?Patchwork foot #37?to piece together your rectangles for perfect 1/4″; sewing.

Step 2- Fussy Cutting the Background

Take all of your fat quarter fabrics and apply Steam-A-Seam to the back of your fabrics. Cut out various birds, florals and butterflies from your fabrics.

Peel off the backing paper and start sticking your elements into place. Press with iron to secure your pieces to your table runner.

Step 3- Sewing the Borders and Quilting

Sew your 3 1/2″; x 43 1/2″; strips from Fabric C to the top and bottom of your tablerunner. Press seams open and finish sewing your borders by sewing a 3 1/2″; x 18 1/2″; strip from Fabric C to each side of your runner.

Make?a quilt sandwich with your quilt top, batting and backing. Choose a quilting thread that will show off the beautiful florals in your runner. We choose a soft pale pink that pops on the yard dye fabric and blends in on the center of the taberunner to show off the fussy cutting.

Attach your?BERNINA Stitch Regulator?to assist you in whatever free motion quilting you choose. Here is a great video for beginner free motion quilters.

To bind our quilt we used the refreshing frosted sage solid denim. Use whatever binding method that you prefer to finish up your runner!

Happy Sewing,


Sometimes I have so much to share but can hardly find the time to sit down and share it. That’s exactly how I feel right now. I photograph a lot of what I do and sometimes I neglect to share it with you. Ani’s room has been “done” for several months and while I’ve shared glimpses of it in posts from parties and the holidays, I realized that I’ve never just talked about Ani’s bedroom.

When we purchased our home two & a half years ago, we looked at it as our forever home. We envisioned the girls {just Adalyn & Ani-to-be} having friends over in our walk out basement& my clients using the side entrance to my office, among so many other dreams. We quickly learned that plans change & if you roll with them, life gets even bigger & better than you planned. Shortly after Aniston’s birth, we learned that we would be expecting our third child! It became very apparent to me that the life I designed for myself would be painted a little differently. I stopped accepting wedding & event clients & was using my office less often everyday. I started transitioning it to a multi-purpose space {coming soon} & our lives took another turn– we made the decision to relocate. From there, we frantically worked to finish the house & design it to our vision, hoping that someone else would fall in love with it.I have so many exciting projects to share over the next couple months as we venture into the new chapter of our lives.
