Sew a beautiful quilted table runner with the help of this collection of over fifty free quilted table runner patterns gathered from all over the web. Here you'll find lots of ideas and inspiration for casual runners, whimsical runners, as well as more elegant, formal runners.


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-quilted runner. And even if you're using a tablecloth on your table, including a table runner on top can add a festive, colorful touch to your setting.

And if you're new to quilting, a quilted table runner can make a great first project. Since it's small, it should stitch up much faster than a full size quilt and be easier to handle in your sewing machine. Choose one of the simpler patchwork designs consisting of large, simple shapes and straight edges (a design of squares or strips of fabric is a good choice) to make it easier to sew. Plus, a design like this will be more forgiving of slightly inaccurate cuts and seams.


And one of the patchwork table runner designs can be a great way to use up small scraps of fabric you may have leftover from other projects. Just be sure to use fabrics of similar fibers and weights.

And if you want to be able to launder your finished table runner, you may want to consider pre-washing your fabrics to prevent shrinking and color bleed. Some quilters recommend this, while other thinks it's unnecessary. If you choose not to 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.
