Here are a couple of the 60 degree table runners that I love to make. The first one was made with a very small stripe and the overall effect is not as dramatic as the wider striped fabrics. I seem to always have my eyes focused on finding nice striped fabrics when I'm at the fabric stores, always looking for fabric that will make an unusual runner.

This one shows what I mean about the dramatic effect. Both are very pleasing. You just have to imagine how your finished runner will turn out, pending the different stripe variations. You really can't go wrong and the way the stripes line up so perfectly makes all of the runners look like they take a lot of precision and hard work. You can't just randomly cut your fabric, but once the fabric is cut correctly, they sew together without a hitch.

After my check writing comment yesterday, I'm feeling quite superior today after seeing this cartoon in this morning's newspaper! Nooooo....wait....what am I saying?.....that I'm only smarter than a dog?! Oh well, I'll take whatever I can get! :)


  1. They are both nice but the second one is the best. I made some of those table runners too.

  2. Great table runners. And on being smarter than a dog - I aspire.

  3. Jeanie, I added you to the No Sew Block Swap but I need an e-mail address. Glad you are joining us!
