Nancy - the shop owner at Piece By Piece Quilt Shop - came in with a free pattern (links below) she came across recently. She showed me the table runners she had made and I couldn’t believe how simple they are.
You will want to make
one some a lot one for everyone you know… and then some to keep for yourself.
It’s just this easy… 1/3 of a yard of one fabric (center) and a 1/2 yard of another (borders and back).
Fold in half along the length (back sides together)…
Even up the edges and stitch from the open end to the fold. Press seam open and turn…
I had already made a runner… swapping the fabrics and using a 10” center piece… which gives you wider borders…
The shop has been packaging up some nice fabric combinations including the free pattern and we cannot keep up with them.
The Ten Minute Table Runner was a publication from Utah State University Extension Office – however I can only find it at this quilt shop’s web site. Although I can’t find that specific PDF currently at the USU Extension Office… I have found that they have a similar one that has you sew the short seams with the runner folded in the opposite direction (front sides together) which results in the corners turned to the back and more of the center fabric shows. Just a little different look… I happen to like having the back/border fabric showing on the front corners.
There’s still time to whip up one or two for Thanksgiving!
