Batiks give the runner a special richness of color. A variety of other low-contrast fabrics will work just as nicely. The soft pink background is a beautiful touch.
Patchwork in a variety of reds on a white background will be beautiful too. The runner will make a stronger impact because of the additional contrast.
We can also image this made up in low-contrast whites, grays and tans for a wedding party’s table. Or, use the bride’s colors for the hearts and select an appropriate background. It will be a wonderful wedding or anniversary gift.
The pattern, from Deb Finan, is an easy one to stitch together. You’ll have it completed in just a few hours.
The finished table runner is 44″ x 12″.
