Gain Sack Toweling



I was so thrilled with the grain sack toweling that I bought that I could hardly wait to sew it up.  I bought a solid oatmeal color that is fabulous and this wonderful orange windowpane pattern.  I thought I would use the windowpane on the breakfast table first.


  It is gorgeous material and since the sides are already hemmed, all that's necessary is to hem the ends.


It give a light cheery look to the table.


I thought I would make another change to brighten things up.  This is what the area looked like before I switched the chairs.


The dining room chairs work beautifully with this table and did you notice I changed the rug.  Much lighter looking don't you think?


I bought 2 yards of the toweling and after making the runner, I had enough left for a matching tea towel.  (I am so coordinated it is just unreal. lol)

If you want some of this wonderful toweling you can get it online from Quilter Studio.  It comes in several different patterns, solids and colors.  $4.95 yd. and great quality. In the left side bar of their site you will see Tea Towels.  Just click and you are on your way.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  1. I love that grain sack material. Orange is my favorite color. I can't sew, so I picked up one of the Dollar Tree bamboo placemats to brighten up my dining room table. Now, of course, I wish I'd bought more. I can't get out until tomorrow so I'm hoping there are still some left.

  2. You are so coordinated! I may have missed the post on where you purchased the fabric. Where did you get it? Did they have blue window pane?

    Thanks,

  11. I love the color you chose for the grain sack runner. It coordinates so nicely with your vignette on the table. And I love how you switched the dining room chairs and the rug looks perfect for a summery look. You are so good at creating new and colorful groupings.. love it. Have a lovely weekend!~Poppy

  14. Isn't it amazing how gratifying a little change can be? I like the new lighter look that you have adopted. I have been eying up some of this tea towel fabric. I bet it is easy to work with. :)

  17. Hi Marty,
    Your new toweling table runner looks great. I just love the orange windowpane pattern. I can't wait to buy more of it so I can change up the runners on my table!
