Orange Kissed Table Runners tutorial
What can you make from 1 charm pack and 2 yards of fabric.....how about 2 table runners and a candle mat or small table topper. Everyone seems to have a few charm packs....don't you? You could also use mini charm packs or scraps from your stash.

I started out with a charm pack of Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda.
Then I cut the charm pack in half which gave me 2½" x 5" blocks - then cut that in half again to give me 168 squares that were 2½ inches. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of that. Then I just started piecing them together.
5 blocks seemed to be plenty for a runner with a border. I was planning on making 2 identical table runners until I put the first one on my table......hmmm longer than the size I like. So I took the other set of blocks apart.
Bella agrees that the smaller one works better for us. I had washed the 2 yards of matching fabric which resulted in a little shrinkage so I cut my bindings for the 2 runners before I did anything with the small left over pieces.
I just had to show you a closer photo of Bella, can you see her little nose? When we she found us as a kitten she was filthy and I kept trying to clean the dirt of her nose.
I did a leaf free motion quilting on the blocks.
I added a 3 inch border and just did a large stipple quilt on it.
This runner is 5 rows of 17 blocks with a 3 inch border. It is a 15 inch x 37 inch table runner after washing. This one will be a gift for someone.
This runner is 5 row of 13 blocks with a 3 inch border. It is 15 inches x 30 inches after washing.
Last one up is the leftovers, a little mat that is 5 rows of 4 blocks with a 3 inch border. It is 13 inches x 15 inches, I ended up with just a little bit of the yardage left over.
I have decided to call these my Orange Kissed runners. If you are wondering about the "props", I had to use something to hold them down as it was a little windy.............boy are we going to have to get that deck stained this year!
