A Coordinating Table Runner


Earlier in the Summer I made some new placemats for my table from some really cute fabrics by Terri Degenkolb of Whimsicals.  When I was choosing the fabrics and then cutting them out, I also cut up fabric to make a coordinating table runner.  This week I finally got round to piecing it together, quilting it and then finishing it off.

 

I used a pattern that appeared free on the Better Homes and Gardens Website: 'All People Quilt'.  The pattern was designed by Bonnie Olavesen of Cotton Way.  It is a quick and easy pattern and went together very smoothly.


In the end, I haven't put the runner on my kitchen table as I originally planned.  I discovered it was an exact fit for the coffee table in my living room and I am very pleased how it looks on there.  It will also protect the table from any more scratches!!
