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!!
