Perfect for Table Runners and More!

We often see wonderful table quilt patterns and imagine making them reversible, with seasonal fabrics on one side and fabrics for a second season on the reverse. That way we just need to flip the little quilt over to update our decor when the seasons change.

Reversible quilts can be more than just for tables, though. Throws are a good choice, as again, they can be flipped and refolded to accent the sofa for two different seasons. Or create a quilt with two different moods, perhaps with a bold and bright design on one side and a more elegant one on the other.

While making a reversible quilt sounds simple, how exactly do you layer the two tops so that they’re aligned correctly with each other?

The following video by Laura Roberts shows you how to do that. It’s fussier than layering up a standard quilt with a backing, but still easy to do. And, well worth the time when a reversible quilt is the perfect choice.

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!
