Rainbow Bright - 58 of 365

A few weeks ago, I entered an drawing from my favorite local fabric store, Sew Modern for a bundle of fat quarters from Quiltcon. And wouldn't you know it, I won!



So.....what to make with it?

I thought about that for quite awhile. With these colors, I got a strong summery feeling. And then BAM! It hit me. A new summer table runner.

Using 1 1/2" stripes, I sewed the stripes together vertically and in the colors of the rainbow.

I still had quite a bit leftover, so I whipped up a few coasters too. All of these gave me some practice with bindings. Still not perfect, but I'm getting better!
