Romance Table Runner

I have a finish! I’m really excited to share this with you. I finished the top and quilting ages ago, but only recently found the time to put on the binding.

I made this runner from a charm pack of Tonga Romance. I cut each of the squares diagonally into quarters, and randomly sewed them into quarter square triangles. I kept the pieces by my machine and sewed it as a leader-ender project. I love how leaders and enders make it feel like you’re getting a free quilt without taking any extra time for sewing.

I quilted it with a variegated blue and brown thread. It’s one of my favorites. I’ve used it quilting for customers, but this was the first time it went well on one of my own projects.

The solid backing fabric really shows the quilting. The design is Feather Plumes.

Now the runner is gracing my table. And my husband even mostly likes it! That’s a big win in my house since our tastes in fabrics and colors are nearly opposite.

Random quarter square triangles is one of my favorite scrappy patterns, and it’s a go-to when I make a runner. What’s your favorite design for a table runner?
