And table runner is not only beautiful, but of course, also provides protection for
your table top, with a quilted table runner adding even more protection than a non-

pre-wash your fabric and want to launder your table runner, you may want to toss
a couple “color catchers” into your washing machine to help prevent color bleeding.
