Whether for a dressy party, a casual outdoor barbecue, or an everyday dinner, accessorize your table with a custom table runner. Find just the one you need in our new Make series booklet Make Table Runners . This collection of ten table runners by top quilt designers will inspire you to make that one-of-a-kind table runner that will elicit oohs and aahs from your guests.
Just right for that round table, Sally Bell’s Star of the Picnic Table Topper gives the illusion of circular rings. It’s the piecing of square Friendship Star blocks, some rectangles, and triangles (from provided patterns) that gives it that special look.
Twine Runner, by Valori Wells, showcases sections of a large-print decorator fabric, accented by “twine” trim around the border and through the center, made by a diagonal strip-piecing method with alternating fabrics.
Make a bold statement with Kim Schaefer’s Boardwalk Table Runner. Just three large blocks with bright strips in center squares, some appliqué petals (patterns included), and an easy border in an array of dark solid squares—you’ll complete this project in no time!
Whether you want to dress up your table for an event in the remaining hot days of summer or for a fall or winter holiday party, check out the variety in Make Table Runners. Any of these would make a great gift, too!
