This lovely table runner was designed by Stof fabrics and was made in their Duo and Mini Duo fabric ranges; and Valerie Nesbitt shows you other options.
This delightful table runner uses very modern-style fabrics which need no additional enhancement with quilting. So it’s made with the stitch and flip method of construction – so both sides at once and then bind!
Valerie talks you through things to think about when sewing a project of this size in this manner. Pay attention to the back – it will be on show. Think about the quilting patterns if you are using plainer fabrics (i.e. fabrics with less design on them). Make sure that your stitching lines are straight.
