My niece turned 30 yesterday. Since her room is shades of grey, my sister suggested that I make a runner for a dresser. Getting the measurements from her sister and roommate proved to be a bit of a challenge. After hanging up from a conversation where she was heading into the house to measure, I waited quite a while. Trying to jar her memory, I text, “Are you still looing for a ruler?” She responded, “I had to download an app! How sad is that? It’s roughly 44 x 18.”
My process for making this was to cut 30 pieces of grey fabric at different lengths by 1.75″ I cut several strips of white WOF at 1.75″. For each piece of grey, I cut whatever length would equal 20″ of the white and then split it unevenly. I arranged them, added one extra 3″ x 20″ length at each side, sewed them together, then trimmed to 18″ x 43″. I used my “go to” straight line quilting with grey thread.
