Say goodbye to winter and welcome a new season into your home with this spring-coloured table runner. Table runners are a lovely way to dress up your dining table (or any other large table or surface in the house!) and a great way to try out new patchwork and quilting techniques as they don’t have as many blocks as a quilt. You could even use heat-resistant batting to protect your table from hot dishes!
This pattern mostly uses fat quarters and fat eighths so is a great way to showcase a few of your favourites. You could also raid your scrap bin and try a scrappy version using different fabrics in each block.
The blocks uses simple block piecing plus some quarter square triangles so it is a great pattern for a beginner looking to try something a little more complicated but who isn’t ready to tackle a full quilt. If you have a smaller table then you can easily reduce the size by only using three square blocks plus the two end-corner blocks; this would create a table runner that is about 36″ long (the original design is 54″ long) and would require less fabric.
