Other Fabric Styles Will Be Lovely Too!
Strips of batiks are beautiful in this ombre-style table runner. It’s a simple project and can easily be adapted to suit your needs.
Exact measurements for the runner shown here are not provided. However, you can adjust the length and width to fit your table.
Or, since it’s actually four sections sewn together, you can finish those off for a set of place mats.
The 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips are fused to fusible fleece, then cut apart and folded into thin strips (a Gypsy Quilter Jelly Roll Tube Maker will speed the process). Use a zig zag stitch to sew the strips together.
Timeless Treasures Tonga Treats jelly roll strips were used in the example (find a nice selection here or a wider selection of batik jelly rolls here). Or go with any beautiful jelly roll in a print style you love.
The specified binding is pieced from a pack of 6″ x 40″ strips. However, jelly roll strips will work or go with a binding made from one fabric instead of several. Tassels made from strips of fabric finish off the runner. Or omit them if you prefer.
The runner was designed by Janaé King for Timeless Treasures.
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!
