Lemon-Lime Table

I bought these Nicey Jane fabrics with the idea of making placemats or a table runner to brighten up our kitchen table for spring.

I started piecing them together a month ago, and I finally had time to finish the ensemble.

I made the placemats first by sewing together four printed strips and a couple uneven solid strips, which measured 10.5 inches wide. I cut those strip sets into 10.5-inch squares, and framed them with chartreuse green solid borders. I didn’t feel like sewing bindings onto each individual placemat, so I layered them right sides together with a piece of flannel for batting, sewed them together, leaving an opening to turn them right side out, and quilted in the ditch to  secure the layers.

For the tablerunner, I alternated the layout of four of those 10.5-inch patchwork squares, and framed it with a grass green solid fabric.

I especially love the look of those randomly quilted lines, especially on that backing fabric. I used that same grass green solid fabric for the binding.

It’s so cheerful and festive to sit down to such a bright lemony-lime table.

  1. What a nice way to start a dreary rainy morning! I love both sides of that table runner and the grass green sure does celebrate the best of Summer! In order to have the green, we must have the rain, right? Can you tell I’m already missing the bright sun?!! Oh, well, stuck inside quilting is not so bad. Have a great week-end, no matter what you do!!
