Hello! My name is Kathy and I'm happy to share my first blog post!  I designed this fun Table Runner with the Simply Sweet fabric line and added some green (my favorite color) burlap to give it some texture.  I really love combining applique with some simple piecing.

Hi all! It is Anjeanette from, and I am back with another fun tutorial for you. I just adore the new line Sasparilla by October Afternoon. It has such a fun western flair to it. I thought it would make an adorable table runner, using the bandana fabrics. The design is supposed to look like a twisted ribbon with the blue bandana fabric twisting diagonally down the runner.
