Table Runners

I was organizing my linen closet and discovered that I had made a few table runners that I kept.  Usually, I give them away for gifts.

IMG_2108The spiral runner was made with from a pattern “Spicy Spiral Table Runner” by School House Quilts.  It is made with a 10 degree ruler.  The fabric was strip pieced and cut and then sewn back together.  Organization is the key to keeping the strips in order.

 

IMG_2112This table runner is made from a “Piecing with Poppers” pattern by Sharon Mayers.  The poppers make a big difference in the piece.  I pieced the back the regular way and the front with the poppers to show the difference.  The “poppers” really do make the quilt “pop.”I have other Sharon Mayers patterns and will make them in the future.IMG_2113

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_2115I was having a dinner party the first part of March and thought a green table runner would be great to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.  This pattern is a free download from Connecting Threads,  I sewed it together a little different than the instructions.  It called for cutting each piece separately,  I sewed the sections in a strata and then cut the strips.

The Guild had a class about modern quilting.  This was the class project.  It worked up quickly.

 

 

 

IMG_2114This runner was made with the flip and sew method.  It was quilted as I pieced it.  I’m not sure which pattern I used as I have many patterns with this runner.

 

IMG_2109This is another Connecting Threads pattern.  It looks difficult to make, but in reality is very easy.

I enjoy making table runners and table mats because they are quick to make and it’s instant gratification.

Have a great day and happy quilting
