Celebrate the change of seasons with the help of this collection of over thirty free fall table runner patterns, tutorials, and diy sewing projects gathered from all over the web.
Here you'll find quick and easy fall runners to make, rustic burlap runners, more complex, show-stopping quilted patchwork table runners, and cute autumn runners with leaf and pumpkin motifs.
A table runner, of course, can provide an easy way to dress up a table for a special occasion (or just for everyday), adding a festive, decorative touch. But it can also serve the practical purpose of providing protection for your table. Sew a quilted runner and you'll not only get the protection the extra padding will provide, but the table runner can also double as a large hot pad, eliminating the need for a series of separate pads for any hot dishes you may be serving.
And, of course, the main benefit to making your own table runner is you get to choose your fabrics and design the runner just the way you want. And with a fall table runner, you'll probably be choosing warm toned fabrics that reflect the colors of the season. And one of the patchwork designs can be a great way to use up all of those orange, red, yellow, and brown fabric scraps you may have leftover from other projects.
And one of the simpler, non-quilted runners would make a great project for someone just learning how to sew. And if you're new to quilting, one of the quilted designs would make a great first quilting project. A table runner will be small enough for a new quilter to complete quickly, giving her the satisfaction of a completed project. It will also be easier for a new quilter to handle and sew than a full-size bed quilt. And then if she decides quilting isn't for her, she hasn't invested that much time or materials in the project.
