I designed this fun table runner called “hightail” and it features flying geese, half square triangles, and of course, fun color combinations!

It looks great hanging on our deer fence.

I used safety pins to add a temporary sleeve to the table runner.

Which made it easy for me to hang the quilt up on our wall!

While, I do think my table runner is pretty fabulous … there are lots of other ones I’d love to make from the Table Runner Roundup book.  Perhaps I’ll even get an early start on my Christmas gifts this year!  I’m not going to show you ALL the quilts in the book … but these four are definitely on my to-do list!

  1. I usually give table runners away to friends, but I have a few holiday ones that I bring out annually. These are so pretty I'm not sure I'd want to give them away!

  18. I do love a good table runner on my dining room table! The problem comes when the cat thinks it's there just for her to play in. :)

  19. I have runners on several tables in my house, but a lot of the runners I make are for gifts. I think they are wonderful gifts, as most anyone can find a place to use a runner. And having a variety to change out for the seasons and/or holidays is nice.

  48. Your table runner is gorgeous and when I saw it yesterday I wondered who was the creator. Well, my table is always layered with projects and newspapers so I make my table runners as wallhangings....or I haft them. BTW 2 other friends and I made a Dresden village and it was sooo fun.

  51. Epiphany! Call “table runners” “skinny quilts,” and suddenly other uses crop up. Thanks to the other comments, I’m seeing these pieces in a new way. I love the patterns you’ve shown here and would love to see the whole book.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I use them on my table only but am definitely open to getting more use out of them in creative ways.

  56. I use them throughout the house where ever I need a pop of color! I like the way you can change the look instantly with just a few changes with runners. I also have a wonderful kitchen counter that I love to display my current runners. Love the look that you showed of some of the runners in the book plus yours that you made. So appealing, fun and updated!
