    Christmas Table Runner (marathon runner)

    This is the very first quilted thing I made, about 3 years ago. My dining table is 17 feet long, so this is a marathon runner. You can't really see, but on the green fabric portion, I used my embroidery machine and quilted a holly and berry pattern. It's very simple, but I was pretty happy with the fact that it came out straight!

    The table runner is beautiful............. I'm sure glad that I don't have to cook for as many people that can fit at that table.

    Love it--very elegant on this enormous table. It's kind of fun to picture two people eating, one at each end of the table. You'd have to have a runner to pass the food! Donna

    Beautiful table runner. When we have our monthly family birthday party I sure wish I had a dining room table like yours. I have people sitting all over the house.

    This would look good on any table (shorter of course). Did you have a pattern? BrendaK

    Your runner is so elegant on your beautiful dinning table. All I could think of is move the table out and put in a long arm machine Just kidding! Beautiful room!

    Yes, we ring for the servants, but they never show up. ;-)

    I actually do sew in here. My "sewing room" is actually a fabric storage facility.

    No, I just did a strip of rail fence, then just a plain strip the same width. Then I used a 1" binding. Here's a close up:

    Very elegant and a great idea for such a big table. I thought my table at 9' was big. Your table x 6 would be perect for my large extended family when we get togehter.

    Thanks for the close up. I have the background fabric and a couple of the other fabrics as well. I also used the fabrics in table runners, (they look pretty good even if I say so myself). The emb. on the runner is super. I am sure that you received a lot of complements on the way it looks. Thanks again for sharing. BrendaK
