Here’s a lovely selection of different table runners you can make, some are made with simple sewing while others involve piecing and quilting (a few with pretty nifty ideas too). These are used to protect and decorate tables of all sizes and pretty much everything on this list can be made to the size you need. If you want something decorative for the holidays, select fabrics and colors to reflect the season. I’ll be adding to this list as I find more goodies, enjoy!
