Vary the Colors for Any Season or to Match Your Decor!

Pull out your red scraps for a simple string pieced runner. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day and Christmas. Or make it up in colors you’ll enjoy all year long.

This is a simple project that will go together quickly. The designer used pages from an old phone book for the foundation for string piecing. If you want to skip having to remove the paper you can use squares of fabric, instead, and leave them in.

Red String Runner Tutorial

Vary the width of the strips to add more variety to your runner. And, the more fabrics the merrier. Just be mindful of value, as the designer demonstrates in her tutorial.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
