Calling all Quilters and Makers! Here is a table runner project that’s just like candy…you can’t have just one! We don’t think we know anyone who did this pattern and stopped at one. In fact, one person we know has done NINE! Yep, looks complicated but it’s so simple, you’ll just want to keep sewing.
And what a creative use of border fabrics. They’re no longer just to be used on the edges of quilts. And how great to have a smaller sewing project for once. You can actually stay small and make it a place mat, or go big and add more sections for a longer table runner. Here are just a few examples of what our customers have done:
Like all our classes, we film in real time which means you get to see us make mistakes that you can then avoid! For instance, as you’re planning your cutting, some borders would benefit from fussy cutting (as Deb found out 🙁 ).
And although this pattern is easy and well laid out, there are some important tips and visuals are always handy: how to cut the strips, how to make your triangle ruler work best, how to line up properly on the strip. You may notice as you slide along the video scroll bar, we have set up Key Sections. So you can quickly move to the section on cutting piece AB or the part where we show how to line the pieces up. The Key Section headings are also found at the bottom of this post.
Our first tip is always: read through the pattern! Maybe even read through it twice. Just to get a sense of where you’re headed.

Note: a fair bit of time goes into making these class videos so please don’t share the class link with your friends! We think the price is pretty reasonable 🙂
