a little bluebird ::tablerunner::

I recently got a bundle of the Cotton + Steel Bluebird fabric collaboration from Stitch Supply Co. and it is beautiful!  I couldn't wait to use it and the Bluebird Sew Off was just the incentive I needed to get started.


I'm really crushing on the aqua, navy, cobalt combination at the moment, so I added some aqua Cotton + Steel basics into the mix and made a stripey table runner that fits in well with my aqua kitchen.  The white essex linen border and binding gives it a summery, beachy vibe.




The strips are 10" x 2.5" and the linen borders are 3.5".  I quilted it with some simple straight (ish) lines in a soft white aurifil thread with my walking foot.

Photographing a long table runner is not the easiest thing to do, but hopefully you get the idea? So, are you crushing on Bluebird too or are you already on the newest C + S collabortion, Black & White?  So much fabric, so little time!!!

  2. Love Bluebird! Your table runner looks fabulous! I was thinking I wanted to chalk paint my dining table black, but now I'm thinking white and the chairs in black. Love your combo! Also, the color of your walls is very similar to the ones in my kitchen and living area. Dining room is more of a teal. So obviously you have great taste. :)
