Star Table Runner for Karen

This is the longest version I’ve made of the star table runner – it’s SEVEN FEET LONG.

As you can see, it’s pretty comical on our little dining room table, but I’m sure it’ll be brilliant on Karen’s!

I quilted the beige background with clear nylon thread, so while you can see texture, you don’t see much of the meandering quilting. I did this to let the stars pop without competition.


Started: February 2017.
Finished: February 2017

This table runner is one of my Q1 finishes, for the 2017 FAL. See my Q1 list here.

I'm small, blunt, bold, and terribly useful. I build websites, specializing in compliant CSS and HTML. I like quilting, cars, and critters.

It’s hard to beat a crisp design in red and green for Christmas. Seven feet is a VERY long runner. On behalf of the 2017 global FAL hosts, thank you for participating in this quarter’s FAL.

The only snag with a Christmas table runner is that the leaves are in the table for the descending crowd 😉
