One of the most fun makes for our wedding was the table runners!
I had a massive sort out of my fabric stash last year and created a box of all my favourite pieces thinking that one day I would use them to make a quilt.
We had decided to hire some nice tables and chairs so that we didn’t need to think about chair covers and table cloths and as we weren’t having a formal sit down meal there wouldn’t be much on the tables – so I wanted to add some colour and knew it was time to raid the special fabric box!
I started by cutting all the fabric into squares and planning it out as a quilt, based on this Anna Maria Horner quilt which I’d seen on Instagram. Not the easiest job on the floor in our little living room!
I made 10 two metre strips of 10 squares for our 10 tables, with each alternate square being formed by two triangles. Each strip is approx 20cm wide which was a good table runner width and will also make the finished quilt nice and big at approx two metres square.
I loved that each table had a different colourway.
It will probably be a while before the table runners become a finished quilt. I think I’ll sew them together to make the quilt top and then complete it if and when we move house!
