Sea Canyon Table Runner is a beautiful 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.

9-inch finished quilt blocks
Use the following diagrams to piece the quilt blocks using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Each block will measure 9½-inches unfinished and will be 9-inches in the finished table runner.
Piece the table runner
Cut (2) 2½-inch x 9½-inch rectangles for the sashing and add between the blocks.
Add the border
- Cream – cut (2) 2½-inch x 31½-inch pieces, add to the top and bottom
- Cream – cut (2) 2½-inch x 13½-inch pieces, add to the sides
Quilt 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 blender batiks like the greens in this batik watercolor collection and the gold batik watercolor collection.
If you would prefer to just buy the yardage needed, these batik blends would be perfect.
I just used a good-quality permanent press muslin on the back so I can save my batiks for my quilt tops.
Do you like my little pelican? He was a gift from the cutest little neighbor boy when we lived at the river house.
