    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 chosen to be happy because it is good for my health - Voltaire

    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"

    acute patchwork tutorial: http://cathy-blueberrypatch.blogspot...ble-cover.html

    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.

    Google "quilted table toppers" and do an image search. You'll find tons.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Here are some of my table toppers that are designed for my round tables. The first is a quarter log cabin block w/strip pieced setting triangles. The second is a "Swirling Stars - Card Trick". The third is string blocks w/way too many "Y" seams. Just some ideas.

    #1 & 3 are my own designs. #2 is from a tutorial from Vicki's Fabric Creations. Here is the link to the tutorial. Mine has 7 strips, the tutorial has 4. If you want more than 4 rows, you just need to adjust the width of your strips to match the width of the strata in the tutorial. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0ByHo...mM3/edit?pli=1

    Wow you have already gotten some great ideas. I love the last 2 Dollyo posted. I use to do square mini tablecloths for the seasons and put them over the regular size cloth.

    The 10 degree ruler lets you make very beautiful round toppers and is such fun to play with. Not too pricy and loads of things to do. Give it a try. I use long narrow toppers on my oval table and let them drape just a little over the edge with a tassle on the point. They look nice and are fun. You can also make place mats to match for a more formal look. Give it a try. Its fun. I will post the most recent french braid one as soon as it is bound and washed.

    I have used both round and rectangular. For the round, I fold yard goods in half (depending on size of table topper you want), length-wise, then width-wise (you'll have two folds); then tie a pencil to a piece of string, the length of which is the radius of the topper + margins. Put the end of the string at the corner of the two folds, then draw a line with the pencil on the string extended the length you'll need (the radius of the circle). Cut on that line and you'll have a complete circle. You can PM me if questions.
