The beautiful Sea Canyon Table Runner is a new table runner that I finished and gifted to a sweet friend. It looks perfect in her living room.
I used three 9-inch blocks and then added a sashing and a border. This would be perfect for any time of year.

- Cream – cut (2) 2½-inch x 13½-inch pieces, add to the sides
Quilt the beautiful Sea Canyon table runner as desired
Add your backing and batting and quilt as desired.
I drew a spine all the way around the table runner and then did some free-motion feathers in the border. I used an Aurifil thread in a color that matched the fabric I used for the binding and a Schmetz 80/20 needle.
Here is a closeup of the feather quilting. I really need to start doing more of it because once I get going…..I really enjoy doing it.
Cut your binding strips 2½-inch x the width of your fabrics and use my easy machine binding tutorial to add it.
The table runner was made using a collection from Island Batik called Sea Canyon. I doubt that you can find the fabrics anymore but this would be perfect for Anthology batiks like these.
I just used a good-quality permanent press muslin on the back so I can save my batiks for my quilt tops. I do this a lot to cut down on the cost of my quilt projects.
Do you like my little pelican? He was a gift from the cutest little neighbor boy when we lived at the river house.
