Peaks and Valleys is such a fun and fast table runner to make!!! And this particular throwback is actually not a tutorial, but rather it's just a free pattern that you can download and/or print right here ;) But it is super easy piecing. You all know how much I love HST's!!! Well this project gives you lots and lots of practice at them ;) It finishes at 14" x 50", so it makes a beautiful edition to a dining room table!!!!
Peaks and Valleys is made with yardage but you could easily use Fat Quarters as well!!! It works best to use smaller scale fabrics as they are cut up tiny to make the angles work. It would be awesome in Solids, or even Grunge ;) Makes me totally want to make one in Grunge now, and maybe just make it two colors!!!! The sky it the limit on the fabrics for this one ;)
And when it came time to quilt my Peaks and Valleys table runner, I decided to stick with the Modern look of Matchstick quilting. And let me tell you, I am glad this was a small project ;) Matchstick quilting looks so awesome but it takes a long time :) You really have to be patient with it. But still, so glad I did it. And I love the variation of colors in the quilting. It just gives it all the more depth ;)
And that is my Peaks and Valleys table runner. I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!
