Embellish the Border for a Special Touch!
Turn a scrappy patchwork runner into something extra special with hand embroidery. It’s not hard to do and a great take-along project.
Or, play with stitches on your machine. You may have something that will replicate the look without the hand work.
Go through your fabric stash and pull out a nice combination of prints for your runner. While the coloring shown here is perfect for autumn, go with whatever color theme you like best.
The piecing is simple and will be finished quickly. Then embellish the borders in whatever way works best for you.
Once completed, the runner designed by Jen Daly is 24½” x 52½”.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
