    A little while back someone posted a table runner they made with the directions. Of course I didn't book mark it and now I can't find it. It was a bit unusual as it had many points along the sides instead of just at the ends. I think it started with a rectangle and then worked with same sized strips. I'm not sure how else to describe it. I think it was also made without the need of binding. Swen together with right sides together and then turned with the opening being slip stitched closed. I have just wasted about and hour trying to find it with a variety of search terms and just can't locate it.

    TIA

    I really like that but that wasn't it (its now on my list) The runner was in a "rectangular" shape.

    I did check the tutes. I don't think it was there as I remember one of the responders suggested that it get put there. Before I post questions I really try to do a through search as many of my questions I KNOW have been asked before. Most of the time I can find what I was looking for. This one is eluding me. I think it was in either the main or picture forum. I have gone back two months looking for it but I think It was posted within the last two weeks. I can't see if there is a way to narrow down the search parameters to a date ranges. Thats why I'm asking.

    Thanks though.

    Did you make a comment on it....a post??? If you did, then you can search on your posts list and maybe find it that way.

    The ten minute table runner starts with one large rectangle piece of fabric and it's turned after sewing. I didn't see the post you are referring to remember it. It sounds like a nice tablerunner to see.

    If that isn't the right one, you might tell us what color(s) were in the runner and it might spark someones memory.

    This must be it! I've seen this before in several quilt blogs over the years. There is a pdf pattern of it I think on Google Cloud.

    sounds like you are talking about the reversable table runner- start with a 9 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangle in the center- then 3 1/2"X 9 1/2" strips- start with placing a strip on each long side of the rectangle- then alternating each strip off set by the 3 1/2" in a brade fashion- for the length you want.
    it is best to keep it layed out- as you sew each strip take it back, lay it down and pick up the next strip- to keep them correct.
    when it is all sewed together you lay down your batting- backing right side up on top of batting- top you just pieced right side down *facing the backing* pin at each point and inside point.
    stitch around it 1/4" seam leaving an opening for turning right side out-
    clip the corners off the outter points- clip into each inside point to the stitch line- turn right side out- poke out each point- press flat-
    stitch opening closed-
    then top stitch all the way around-
    you can (quilt) stitch in the ditch of the strips if you want to.
