    Late Christmas and wedding gifts - Green Links Table Runners

    I made 7 table runners with interlocking pieces. Each one is a little different from the others. They were meant for Christmas gifts and wedding gifts, but, alas, I was either too slow or tried to make too many runners in a short amount of time!

    I was looking at a pattern for this but decided there were too many little pieces, so I reconfigured it to suit my style of quilting. The arduous task of what to quilt on the quilt took a little while and seems to have worked out just fine.

    Which one is your favorite? I don't understand why the first picture rotated.

    Thanks for looking!

    I really like this pattern and that Stonehenge fabric is certainly a lovely choice for these table runners. And, your quilting choice is just perfect for your project.

    Gorgeous I can't just pick one. That can be a confusing pattern. Love your quilting choice.

    Hi Brenda,
    The original quilt pattern is called Island Chain and it can be found in the book Scrap-Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett.
    https://www.amazon.com/Scrap-Basket-.../dp/1604680148

    I only wanted a table runner and didn't want all the little pieces, so I reconfigured it for a table runner. I couldn't find my way of cutting and piecing the linking chain anywhere on the internet. You can easily make the chain using Kim's pattern by using the outside border part. The quilt is much more complex than this runner and that's why she uses smaller pieces. Her method is probably much quicker than mine. I probably spent the most time on my quilt knotting and burying threads from the quilting.

    I used two packs of Robin's Egg 40" x 2 1/2" strips to make 7 of these (the last one was more scrappy because the leftovers were being used). I LOVE Stonehenge fabrics!

    They are stunning! I think they would make a great wall display on a large wall.

    They all came out great. I like number 4 with the darker on the ends and the lighter in the middle. It is striking!
