A couple of years ago I made a runner for my dining table, using a pattern called "Kle kjokkenet i 60-tallsdrakt" by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa, that was featured in the magazine Quiltemagasinet Nr 4/07, and used a selection of cream and gold fabrics from my stash. I had some fabric leftover, and needed a smaller runner to match for my coffee table, and finally this week I've made it! This was quickly pieced together as it just used 8 blocks and 2 end borders. I've used a gold metallic Madeira thread, and quilted this very simply in straight rows. I used a plain cream Mettler quilting thread in the bobbin, to blend in with the backing fabric...
...the wadding in this runner is Pellon, a felted polyester wadding that is quite thin, and my prefered choice for table runners and place mats. I've sewn some cream coloured buttons to hold the prairie points into position. I used a single fold binding, which is hand stitched onto back of the runner, and I've added one of my labels to a corner of the runner...
...this runner has got pride of place on my coffee table this year!
