    Red face Table Runner ?

    I love table runners, but my table is round/oblong (with leaf) does anyone have any suggestions for where I can find patterns for table runners suitable for roundish tables? Thanks for your help.

    You can also use the rectangular table runners. But if you want round see if you can find a Christmas tree skirt pattern.

    If you google "hexagon table toppers" you'll find some great images that might lead you to a pattern.
    Here is one I did, but I have no pattern. It is made with triangles.

    I have made a few round ones. It was from a magazine, but I have seen it recently being sold as a download from e-central or Annie's, can't remember which one.

    make a rectangle and add a half dresden, half hex, or three 60* triangles to the end.

    I use a square topper sometimes. Here is one I made for a neighbors round table.

    If I wanted to do a table runner for an oblong table I would look for the angle cuts for the octagon table topper. If you put a fabric rectangle between the octagon halves, it would make a nice runner with kind of rounded ends.

    Just so happens I am making this one tonight. The width is 3/5 of the length, so it makes a good "oval"

    I have the same round-to-oval table nd use a rectangle
    when it's oval and a square when it is round. You might also look at tree skirt patterns and consider whether they could be "fixed" so they don't have a hole and a cut from center.
