My New Table Runner

I have been looking for the right table runner pattern to use on my dining room table for the last 6 months.  I just couldn’t find what I wanted.  Until last month, I saw a table runner a friend of mine had made out of the ‘Marmalade’ fabric line.  It was exactly what I wanted.

I looked through my stash and found a ‘Fig and Plum’ charm pack, that has been sitting around for a few years.  It was perfect. (I did take out all the purple squares though.)

Curvy quilt border

I’ve never done a curvy border or cut my own bias binding.  Two new firsts for me!  I just traced my friends curvy table runner to get the pattern for mine.  And for the continuous bias binding, I followed the tutorial found here, made by the Missouri Quilt Co. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  It makes a great focal point for my dining room.
