    10 minute runner variation

I also flipped the ends the opposite way so that the panel would not be chopped off at an awkward place, so the flipped side goes to the back, and hand stitched the ends down so that the sewing line would not show through on the front side.

    I was wondering if anyone else flipped them the other way, I like that much better personally. I've done both ways and everyone who has seen them prefers it with the center fabric out to point. I did not bat them either. Here's the first one i made in batik for my dining room table

    Very nice table runner. Thank you for sharing directions. As an FYI, I can't do it in 10 minutes either.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I am going to my neighbors tonite, we are going to make 10 minute table runners. I hope I can make it in 20, because I need 4 by Friday for gifts!

    I have a question about the batting. Is that the correct width? Wouldn't it be too wide ?

    Hi oma66, just looking at your runner. It's so unique and very nice. Your neighbors will love it. Where did you find the pattern? Everyone finds so many pretty things to make.
    Thanks for the pics.

    Next time I am going to cut the center just 9 inches so that I have more border showing. You can create yours any size you want. I am making 8 for my neighbors for Christmas and will do just simple quilting. They will all be in Christmas fabrics.

    after sewing the ends, a point is formed. turn and press.

    This is the sample so I have not quilted it yet. You can do all kinds of things with this, like adding piping, rick-rack in the side seams, patch work in the middle, etc.

    Where did you find the original pattern from? Was it in a book of Ten Minute Blocks? These are so pretty and quick from what your saying.
    Great job everyone.

    Hi all, I just googled "ten minute table runner" click inter & up came a pattern
    From UtahState University. Printed out just fine & everything. I am going to make lots of these.
    Your tutorial is wonderful. We just need to see 1 and were off running our little legs off aren't we??
    Your work on them is wonderful and so pretty.

    Thank you so much for sharing.

    I've made quite a bit of them as Christmas presents. Gave some away early so that the recipients could use them this holiday season. They all were so well received. I received the pattern from my lqs and my dealer. I didn't do one though until I saw your tut as I am a visual learner. I varied the widths based on my center panel and even added an inner border as I saw fit. I used a thin lining from pelon.

    Thank you - will post my pics soon.

    Welcome MarciaN,
    Yes add the batting or flannel inside the tube, here is where you get the pattern!! ( although the pattern I got doesn't mention any batting, 1 member on the board said she used flannel).
    google "ten minute table runner" and it comes up.
    There are several that come up, I decided on the one from UtahState, by Larue Bunnell Clark.
    Have fun on the board, it's fun here.

Wondering tho, if you wanted to add batting, did you just slip that in the tube after sewing together? Thanks again for the tutorial. I made some placemats to match by cutting the tube in half.
