From classic chic to modern cool, the versatility of the table runner shines in this collection of all-new projects for gracing the spaces in which we gather. Thirteen designs include scrappy stars for the dinner table, sweet pineapples for alfresco dining, a clever hexagon runner that instantly transforms into place mats, and more. Fun and easy techniques range from improvisational piecing and fusible applique to stitch-and-flip triangles and dimensional curves. Quilters will get double the enjoyment when they use these beautiful pieces as wall hangings or accents to display on other kinds of “table” tops, such as dressers and bookshelves, or draped over chairs, hutches, and cabinet doors.
