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!!!
