Here’s a peek at more projects from the book:

From Table-Runner Roundup

We posed a question to the designers featured in Table-Runner Roundup:

How do you like to display your table runners (besides on a table)?

Here are their creative answers!

  • Jude Spero of Little Louise Designs says, “I like to use them as wall hangings, possibly on the wall of a staircase landing or other narrow wall space. They’re also nice to cover pillows on beds or drape over the foot of a bed. Sometimes I arrange them on the back of an overstuffed chair to pull the colors of a room together.”
  • Julie Taylor says, “I like to display my table runners on the hearth in my lounge. They look really nice next to a lit fire in winter or with a few candles on them in summer.
  • Jane Davidson of Quilt Jane says, “I’ve hung them on the wall or placed them at the end of a bed as a bed runner. I’ve even used them on the top of the piano.
  • Michelle Bartholomew says, “I hung my table runner on the wall in my daughter’s nursery. It makes the perfect wall hanging!”
  • Kim Lapacek of Persimon Dreams says, “I have a wall between my door and window that’s really skinny. It’s the perfect place to hang a table runner if you don’t want to put it on your table. My family also has an apple orchard, and every season we cover all the displays with table runners to make the shop more warm and inviting.
  • Tony Jacobson, manager and creativity director at Piece Works Quilt Shop in Winterset, Iowa, has a unique idea—he says, “Currently in our shop, a table runner is draped around a dress form.” It’s like Miss Table-Runner America!

    —Kris B on July 20, 2018
