We are so honored and delighted to have Brooke from the Silly Mama Quilts blog on Notions today showing off a beautiful table runner she made using our new and exclusive Good Neighbors collection by Amanda Jean Nyberg. Brooke was kind enough to provide a step-by-step tutorial for the construction of this lovely project, so follow along and learn how to make your own!
Good Neighbors is a fabric line designed by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts exclusively for Connecting Threads. I designed this project using fat quarters from the line. This project could also be done with scraps.
Let’s get started! The finished size of the runner is 19.5 x 28.5 inches.
Read all directions before beginning
All fabric is estimated at 42” wide (WOF = Width of Fabric)
Seam allowance: ¼ inch
This pattern is for the Confident Beginner
All measurements are in inches
Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated

Piecing the Runner
Make sure one print is in each set.
Notice the same print in each set?
Sew the strips into units. You will need two units of each set.
Sub-cut the units into 5 1/8 squares, or whatever the width measurement of your strip unit is.
Arrange the blocks into a zig-zag pattern as pictured above. I did a 4 x 6 block layout.
Sew blocks together, first into pairs and then into rows and rows into one unit.
Once the top is complete, sandwich with batting and backing.
I did some simple quilting down the zig-zags and then in the ditch.
I used several of the prints for binding. Sew pieces into one long strip and machine sew onto the runner. Machine or hand sew the binding to the back side.
Your runner is now finished and ready to enjoy!
