Kaffe Table Runner Brightens My Day

This little gem was such a fun project. I adore bright colors, and the greens and reds and oranges and purples in these fabrics make this one of my favorites!

 I purchased this as a kit at the quilt shop in Sisters, Oregon, about four years ago. And then it sat in a drawer. Why, I don't know, because once I got it out to make it up, I was delighted!

Sometimes a kit is just the thing I need to get me motivated for a bigger, more involved project. Sometimes a kit does the trick. Yep, it certainly did this time!

This turned out to be a long table runner, which is perfect for our dining room table. It measures 16" x 71". I finished it and it has brightened up the long winter days we've had this season. Sweet!

This was one of my goals for the quarterly 2018 Finish-A-Long. So glad I put it down as a goal, because now I can thoroughly enjoy it!

  1. That's really a fun tablerunner! Pretty and bright - I enjoyed looking at the way the blocks were made, too.

  2. I do the very same thing, something I love, then put it away in a spot I won't look at again for awhile. I'm glad you brought the kit out and have made it to enjoy! It really is a bright and beautiful runner! Kaffe always uses the best colors, doesn't he?

  3. Fantastic colors Barb. What a pretty piece to keep on the table. His bold florals always make for stunning results.

  4. Great job on getting this one done. I really like how you quilted it. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  5. I thiink some Kaffee fabric is going to be my next "treat" as I love it too!!! Perfect for spring!!!

  6. LOVE this runner! It's the perfect project for these cold wintery days.

  7. I love this tablerunner! How bright and fun and what a great finish!

  8. What a fun project! Don't know whether you inserted the strips improv but it looks like it would be fun to try that way.

  9. Hi Barb,
    What a wonderful finish! So nice and bright and colorful - that's just we all need about now with winter dragging its feet to exit. I just love it!

  10. Such a colorful project! Perfect for Spring weather! Thank you for sharing!

  11. Definitely something we have in common. Loving bright and colorful. :) This turned out GREAT!!

  12. I like your bright colors -- surprising me because I'm not that big a fan of his fabric. I don't tend to buy kits at least not to make whatever pattern. I have been known to find kits on deep discounts and buy for the fabric. Congrats on finishing!

  13. Very pretty runner, love the fabrics and pattern, great finish!

  14. Very pretty, like a beautiful spring garden full of blooms! Well done!


I always love to hear your thoughts!
