If you want some quick and easy, mindless sewing - make a 60 degree table runner. I'm addicted to these and can't resist a cute border fabric when I see it. This summer cocktail fabric found me on my recent road trip. It waved and called my name, until I pulled that fabric bolt from the shelf. I think this one will be cute out on the deck table.
You can make these as long or short as you like. And you can make them as wide as you want, as long as the cuts you make are 60 degrees. Right now I have 2 of these runners made and they need quilting. And there is plenty of the fabric left so I may make more kitchen towels with this added as trim.
