    The name is 10 minute table runner, but it took me 35 min. cutting, sewing, pressing, and putting in the batting. Some of you more seasoned quilters/sewer can probably do it in 10 minutes.

    1 pc. fabric wof X 18 inches
    1 pc. fabric wof x 12 inches
    batting 18x45

    see the photos below.

    sew the length of the fabric

    you are nearly done.

    Next time I am going to cut the center just 9 inches so that I have more border showing. You can create yours any size you want. I am making 8 for my neighbors for Christmas and will do just simple quilting. They will all be in Christmas fabrics.

    after sewing the ends, a point is formed. turn and press.

    This is the sample so I have not quilted it yet. You can do all kinds of things with this, like adding piping, rick-rack in the side seams, patch work in the middle, etc.

    Our quilting group used warm and natural batting and it added just the right amt. of low loft and they are lovely with the batting, but just as you did - batting is not a requirement by any means.

    I do like your sizes better as I think the wider border is more attractive. Will post my Christmas runners when they are finished and I am going to use your sizes and warm and natural batting as I like the way they look with that type of batting. thanks.

    I made several of these table runners, and plan to make more for Christmas gifts. The pattern I used (a kit)didn't ask for the batting and it works just as well. Then you really can do it in 10 minutes. I love these quickie ideas for gifts.

    "put back side together and sew" I got lost at this point. Perhaps I'll just have to follow the first steps then I will see what happens. I can't figure out how two pieces of a rectangle form points on the end. What am I missing?
