Note from Val;
When creating the Christmas version as well as drawing a centre vertical line for the strips, she also double checked the straightness of the rows by drawing a horizontal line on the wadding - one row at a time - after carefully flipping and then lightly pressing the last sewn row.

The finished Christmas runner ended up at approx 18"x 36"

 

This delightful table runner uses very modern-style fabrics which need no additional enhancement with quilting, so was made with the stitch and flip method of construction - so both sides at once and then bind!

Valerie talks you through some of the things to think about when sewing a project of this size in this manner; pay attention to the back - it will be on show; think about the quilting patterns if you are using plainer fabrics (i.e. fabrics with less design on them) and also make sure that your stitching lines are straight.

Some of the alternative fabics you can use - for example her black and white version used a jelly roll, and then she suggests thinking about a Christmas version, as well as maybe adjusting the size to create table mats.

Here are pics of the two quilts mentioned above:
