It’s Great in Any Color Theme!

Pretty fabrics in a braided design create a lovely runner. This will be wonderful in any color palette so have fun making it your own.

The example shown here is a pieced runner without borders laid on top of a blue runner to show what it will look like with a border. Press well as you go and yours will lay nice and flat once it’s completed.

Braided Runner Tutorial

Start with 2 1/2″ strips from a favorite jelly roll or cut strips from fabric you have on hand. Fat quarters and yardage work fine for this project.

This is a simple project and one that will go together quickly. Any ruler with a 45 degree cutting angle will work.

Instructions are provided by Bari J. Ackerman for a 6′ runner. Go ahead and adjust the length to fit your table.

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!
