Custom Runners

I made these sweet table runners and place mats for my mom's friend LaDawn. She bought three yards each of two coordinating fabrics plus binding fabric.  I quilted the three yard pieces on the Bernina Q24. 

Then I cut out and bound two table runners which finished at 15 x 90 inches. 

They are both reversible. 

There was enough fabric left over for seven place mats. 

I have only ever made one quilted place mat for me.  I really wanted to keep these. 

Place mats for my family are now on my bucket list. 


P.S.  I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar.  Check them out to see what other quilters are up to.


  1. Very clever way to do this project quickly! They look so pretty on the table.

  2. That is exactly how I would have done it too-quilt all at once and then cut to size. Makes for easy quilting. I have been wanting to do a center one for the camper table. Just can't decide what size. I will do it with insulbright as the batting.

  3. Fantastic way to create table runners and placemats. Very nice!

  4. Those are beautiful and oh so simple! Hmm, might need some holiday ones!

  5. My sister wants me to create something similar for her. It is a great idea to quilt a big piece and cut it down.

  6. Jasmine, these are beautiful! With two big old pieces of pretty fabrics quilted together you could bust out a lot of fancy lovely sets of runners and place mats. Well done

  7. Another fast and beautiful finish!

  8. Meant to add and what a smart way to make them up so quickly! Gotta remember that.

  9. Good luck with making your own placemats and table runners!! I made some for a friend for Christmas. She LOVED them!! You should enjoy having some on your own table.
