Holiday Table Runner Pattern

Thanks for all of the fun comments, I do love them so! I'm happy that many of you wanted the pattern for my table runner. So you'll find it attached at the bottom. I am kind of embarrassed though, to do it this way but, I couldn't get my scanner to scan the pattern into my new computer and my old old computer is the one that holds the file. I took pictures of each page and if that doesn't work for you just email me and I will try to mail you a hard copy. It's a big file so you should be able to click on the picture and read it. Let me know if you have any trouble. If you're interested I can do a tutorial but just so you know I work full time and it would take me a week or two to get to it. Thanks for your understanding!

BTW~I was very happy to attend the JDRF auction Saturday night and see that my Halloween Table Runner sold for $90 not bad for something similar in size to a small baby quilt. One of the baby quilts there sold for about the same price. There was also a handmade quilted purse that sold for $145 (crazy but cool) it was really cute and it had a bidding war going on between a few ladies that wanted it bad! It's really nice when something you make can fetch a really nice donation for a worthy cause.

Here are pictures of the seven table runners I could find. I've had them stored for a few years so please forgive any fold lines. I threw them in the dryer for a few minutes to flatten them a bit.

From left to right are St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, Patriotic, Halloween, Christmas, & Fall.

I varied the thread color just for fun.

I used blue and red thread on this one.

Below are the 3 pattern pages. If you have any questions just let me know. Thanks!

This is a class pattern I made for my classes and it's pretty old so therefore the email address is incorrect but the other information is right so now you know where I live.

Very cute Kim! Thanks for the pattern. I think my favorite is Halloween -- maybe it's the time of year???

Linda said...

Beautiful! I would have to say that the Halloween and the Valentines ones are my fav's! Love the variety of fabrics!! Thank you for the pattern - I will have to put that on my to-do list!!

CJ said...

Thank you!!! These are just gorgeous and I like all the different layouts. I want to make a few of these now. I mean NOW! Too bad that I have other things I SHOULD be sewing first. Thanks again. I will let you know when I finally do make one.
AWESOME on what yours brought in for the auction!!! Fun on that purse too - all for a good cause :D

CJ said...

I noticed that on your AUCTION runner there is a striped narrow border and then the wider border. Any notes or 'instructions/measurements' on that nifty feature??

TLC said...

Kim, it is so generous of you to share your pattern! Your table runners are wonderful. I have always wanted to have monthy/holiday themed table runners to switch out regularly. But it has sat on my wish list for a long time. So fun to see yours!!

Kim said...

CJ that's a good question about the auction runner. It's easy to add a smaller border just repeat the instructions for the outside border and cut smaller extra strips for an inner border. I think I made mine 1" wide so it finished at 1/2" but I wouldn't go much larger than a 2 inches.

It'll just make the table runner a littler bit wider so just remember to make your back and batting the same size as your finished quilt top.
