Modern Black and Stainless Table Runner Pattern, 17.25 x 58"


This is an original pattern for a long, narrow, and striking table runner. My version used black, gray (stainless) and a white shirting strip with a touch of silver. It's based on the Mexican Star quilting pattern and it is a beauty! You can choose whatever fabrics are right for your decor - and you only need three which makes the choosing easy. This runner is especially appropriate for a buffet or a large dining table for family celebrations. Finished measurements are 17.25 x 58.

The pattern contains step-by step illustrations (15 of them!) to help you through the process. This is not for beginners unless you are ready to hurdle learning new elements in the quilter's bag of tricks. Partial seams are an aspect of the process which results in a beautiful clean finish. Also included are 10 pictures of the actual assembly of the more challenging aspects of the project. The result will be enjoyed by many - but especially you when you hear those complimentary comments from your guests!

Your knowledge of basic quilting techniques is assumed in the writing of this pattern. Layering, basting and binding techniques are not discussed. Fabric requirements are listed and measurements are given for all of the piecing, backing and binding. 100% cotton is recommended - though I did choose to include the tiny silver stripe for a bit of shine.

This is presented in a PDF that can be emailed to you as soon as payment is received. There are no shipping costs. Please remember to download the original attachment in order to get all of the pictures of the steps as they progress.

Take on a statement project. Learn something new. You will be glad that you did!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

While searching my brain for a new project, I asked my daughter for color ideas. She had recently moved to a new apartment with a freshly updated kitchen. Black and stainless steel were the major statements of the room. Such a modern look - and woefully inappropriate linen choices were all she could find. Ta-da! Here is the answer! I normally go with lots of color but sometimes a neutral approach is the best one. The look is sleek and understated but makes such a impact!

Materials Used

I use 100% cotton for virtually all of my projects. Your runner will probably be washed again and again. Make sure your fabrics can stand up to the test. Prewash, preshrink, and use color catchers if there is a chance the color could run.

More Info

Taking on challenges is what keeps our minds fresh. After drawing out the graph paper version of this runner, my mind was boggled at the best approach to piecing it. I refer, in the pattern, to the "dreaded double points" which I found necessary to achieve the result I was looking for. The piecing could have been simplified with more seams. The result would not have been so clean and sleek. It is a challenge, and it is worth it. Especially if you learn a trick or two along the journey.
