Do you change your decor with the seasons or even on a whim? I made this cute table runner from precut strips with warm colors on one side and cool on the other, so I can flip it over to match whatever decorating mood I am in.

Finished Size: 10” x 38”
Robert Kaufman Half Roll Jelly Brights OR 10 2 1/2” strips; 5 warm colors and 5 cool colors. Terrific way to use up leftovers!
Polyfil Low Loft Quilt batter 10 1/2” x 38 1/2”
Coordinating sewing thread and white sewing thread
Notes: 1/4” seam allowances allowed.
Cut each of your 10 strips to 30 1/2”.
Align your cool strips from dark to light.
Sew them together beginning each strip 2” below the one to its left.
Align your warm strips from dark to light.
Sew the together beginning each strip 2 “ above the one to its left.
Check to make sure right sides/wrong sides line up!
Trim batting to the size/shape of the assembled halves.
Stack them with Side One right side up, Side Two right side down, then the trimmed batting.
Sew all the way around leaving a 3” opening along one long side to turn the work.
Clip all corners and turn right side out. Press, turning under the seam allowance of the opening.
You can quilt this however you choose! I used a machine embroidery stitch on my machine, making sure I chose one that looks good on both sides of the fabric, and stitched along each seam in white.
I used a smaller machine embroidery stitch that was staight on the right hand side and sent around the entire runner in white. You could do a simple topstitch if you prefer.
