Make this deceptively simple table runner using multiple borders. You’ll learn to make a basic border, pieced border, skinny border, Amish corners and metered corners, and you’ll take home a lovely table runner, ready to be quilted. Now you can put any type of border on your quilts!

The pattern is provided free of charge by the instructor.
It’s best to have full length cuts of the fabrics. Fat quarters aren’t suitable for this project.
#1. Medium 1/4th yard (center plus pieced border) (tan with leaf print in sample)
#2. Medium 1/8th yard (pieced border) (tan in sample)
#3. Medium 1/8th yard (pieced border) (tan in sample)
#4. Medium 1/8th yard (pieced border) (tan in sample)

#6. Dark 1/4th yard (outer border & skinny border) (burgundy in sample)
Backing ½ yard
Binding 1/4th yard
*The table runner can easily be doubled in length by purchasing two times the amount of fabric #1, #5 & #6, plus purchase a total of 6 to 7 medium fabrics of 1/8th yards each.
Heavily starch each piece of fabric—I like to use a spray starch such as Niagra or Faultless.
Pin the fabric number onto each piece of fabric so they don’t get mixed up.
Quarter Inch presser foot if available
Rotary cutting equipment—24” long ruler & cutter (mat is provided by the shop)
Optional but nice to have—6” or 9” square ruler
Thread that coordinates
Basic sewing supplies—pins, seam ripper, thread snips, extra machine needles, etc.
Bring a sack lunch, or the shop can help you order a lunch from a local restaurant—cash only for the lunch, please.
