It is crunch time for Christmas gifts! If you are in a panic on what to give a friend or family member, think about a Table Runner. They are quick to piece, easy to quilt, they look great and people will think you are amazing!

(If my Sister and Sister-in-Law are reading, go no further!)

This table runner will take about an hour to piece and measures about 23 x 62 inches. Then allow about two more hours to finish with the quilting and binding.

To quilt this table runner, put it on your quilting machine lengthwise and quilt away! You could put a pantograph pattern on it or do some simple free hand quilting. Even an all over stipple would look good.

I chose to put free hand feathers on my table runners. It literally took longer to put the table runner on the machine than it did to quilt it.

This table runner I am giving to my sister, Sharon. It has Warm & White batting and it is quilted with free hand ¬†“straight edge” feathers with gold, high sheen polyester thread.

Here is a photo of the back


The backing fabric is a deep red, almost burgundy, which doesn’t show up well in the photo. I hope you can see the stitching.


This is the table runner I am giving to my sister-in-law. I has the Warm & White batting, gold high sheen polyester thread and is quilted with all over free hand feathers and swirls.


The back is the same deep red / burgundy fabric and you may be able to see the texture a bit better in this photo.

These table runners are made with Christmas fabrics, but imagine them with summer or fall themed fabric! Too cute!

Have a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year!
