I recently pulled out a couple of table runners I finished last fall to use for a tablescape on one of my other blogs.
I have such fun combining my quilting hobby with my love of setting tables.
It's such fun to be able to make smaller useful projects like table runners. These two are made from 3-inch paper-pieced blocks from Carol Doak's book, Simply Sensational Nine-Patch Stars.
With the seemingly unlimited possibilities of mixing and matching, this is the most useful quilting book I have ever bought.
I am finding that I like the runners without any quilt batting in the middle. They stay nice and flat on the table if I use a heavier backing fabric and nothing in the center. If the backing fabric is not heavy, I do use a very thin bat.
This is the backing fabric on these runners.
Quite subtle compared to the other side, don't you think?
If you want to see the table after it's all set, you can by clicking here.
