This is a narrow batik runner that I made to fit the bar Builder Bob made in the basement.

This was actually a top corner cabinet and book shelves that matched the cabinets he put in my quilt room. If you missed that post you can see it here. I ran out of space there and we didn’t want to get rid of them so he cut down the height of the book shelves; attached it to the corner cabinet and then built a top for it.

Now we have a liquor cabinet and a place for his CD’s. It also nicely filled up this space. We call the deer Bambi and bought it at a Ducks Unlimited auction a couple years ago.

The runner is only 9 inch wide and 31 inches long. Very simple, I just cut 2 1/2 inch strips of batiks 9 inches long and sewed them together until I got a length I liked. I then added a backing and warm & natural batting. I did the free motion wiggle on my 15-91 Singer. Nothing like a fast & easy project to make sure everything is working fine on my sewing machine!

  1. Looks perfect there, Connie. I am always amazed at the neat projects you come up with. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful.

    I made several scarves like that at Christmas. Put flannel on the back for warmth. I'm going to put together one from my batik stash.

  5. It might be very simple, but it is just right for the spot and beautiful because you put lovely batiks together that look great with one another.( I love carefully chosen fabrics that aren't too cut up so they can be themselves.)

  7. Your runner is beautiful. Congratulations to your winners of the batiks – I hope they will show us what they do with them.

  8. Oh phooey, I didn't win but congrats to those that did! I can never get enough batiks and your runner showcases them perfectly. I'll need to have a look see for some coordinated batiks in my stash to try this and the squiggle quilting. That or I'll just buy some batiks at the Black Bear Trading Post when I go camping this weekend 🙂 I need to buy *something,* right?!

  9. WOW!!!! Yippee Skippee!!!! I'm so excited!!! (Can you tell?) I can't wait to hold those yummy fat quarters, cut them all up and then sew them up into something gorgeous :*) Thanks so much Connie for hooking us up with the giveaway, and thanks to Connecting Threads for the fabrics!

    I love your runner – it's just the right size and simple design for that space. And Builder Bob did an amazing job making that corner cabinet to fit in there so perfectly :*)

  10. Very pretty runner. I love the colors. And congrats to the winners. Guess I will have to pop over and order some batiks from CT.

  11. Your table runner looks very nice on the beautiful cabinet your DH repurposed. You are a talented couple.
