Border Table Runners - Part 1 - Finished!

I've mentioned these before - table runners made from a border print. I took the class back in March, and since then, I've been churning out...well, tops. My hand-stitching is glacierly slow, so the binding has taken a while.

I finished the first "Celebrate!" one in March, just in time for a birthday.

Bound a daisy one for my church's silent auction in April.

And finally, I finished the set that started it all - the witches border print that my mom bought...a long time ago.

Quilted with the most adorable loops and pumpkins, if I do say so myself.

The leftover pieces work perfectly as a little center piece. Or a wall hanging. Or a giant mug rug or large candle mat. I really like the kaleidoscope effect of the witches' faces.

And then while I was at it, I finished up the second Celebrate one.

With a bright and cheery backing, and double loop quilting.

And the matching hexagon mini.

Size: long - approx. 20x40" depending on the print / small - approx. 20x20"

The witches all went to my mother, but the two Celebrate ones will be listed for sale on my Facebook page. And stay tuned - I have quite a few left to bind!


  1. ooooh, I love the Halloween fabrics. I was just at JoAnns the other day seeing their fabric sale and was thumbing through the Halloween section. I was itching to buy some but I was able to walk away. Now, I may have to go back!!

  2. very pretty, love them all, but the daisy one is just too cute

  3. Congrats on getting these finished up. I really love the pumpkins, too.

  4. Fun runners and minis. I like all of them, I couldn't pick a favorite.

  5. Such great table runners and table toppers, Kate. Those fabrics are so fun and cheerful! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  6. Super cute Kate! What a fun way to use those border prints. Besides making awesome mitered cornered borders on gorgeous quilts.
