    Talking My reversible curvy quilt-as-you-go table runner

    I signed up for a table runner swap on another board and as I was considering the possibilities, I came across a picture in one of the catalogs (maybe Connecting Threads?) of a curved table runner with bias strips and fell in love with it (sorry not sure about the designer to credit her/him) but didn't want to wait on a pattern and quickly started drafting and thinking of a way to make this runner. After much thinking, it dawned on me how to do it...lol..I also wanted to make a seasonal table runner and while talking to a friend, she said why not a reversible featuring two holidays?! and this is how this table runner was born, lol...cutting the curved pieces was probably the hardest and most time consuming part. Considering that I was flying by the seat of my pants, lol, it came together pretty smooth and I love love the end product as did the quilter who received it. I had lots of fun with this one and hoping to make more in the future. It measures about 19x49.

    Turned out great!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Wonderful table runner. Yes, it was CT that had a similar pattern/kit. Believe in the Maple Sky fabric line.

    Yes, your instructions please. I've been sitting here trying to figure it out too. Did you make templates for each cut piece or stack the fabrics and random cut ? I love the final results and would like to make one for a family friend that has helped my children so much.

    No templates, and yes, just stacked the fabrics up and did random cuts with my rotary cutter. Stack the fabrics for one side facing the same directions, say all right side up, then the fabrics for the back facing the opposite directions, all wrong sides up in this example, pin together and just do your cuts as you please. Then match the bands together for front and back.

    I used this tutorial for a two-color binding. It was fun!
