Handmade Quilted Table Runner2040

Handmade Quilted Table Runner, Patchwork Tapered Blue, 13″x52″

To my great delight, the color blue is once again becoming fashionable in home decor. Blue is my husband’s favorite color and I too enjoy blue. So, the color blue has always been in our home. It’s nice to have it “fashionable” again, so I can enjoy making more table mats in blue. The following is my latest and it’s a gem!

The runner measures 13″ x 52″ from longest point to longest point. The sides are 38″ long before tapering starts. The assorted blue cotton fabrics were aligned in an angled pattern moving outward from the diamond centerpiece. The runner is bordered in the same dark blue as the diamond center. It’s truly striking AND is a one-of-a-kind item! If you would like to adopt this runner, it’s available on my website (as of the date this post was written), http://www.handmadeiniowa.com/over_40_long.html

Enjoy the pics!

New Fall Harvest Table Runner

New Fall Harvest Quilted Table Runners

Now that the weather is changing and fall is fast approaching, I’ve created some new fall harvest quilted table runners. They’re both featuring the same high quality cotton quilting fabric, but were made slightly different. Few table runners I make are identical. In fact, I strive to make them all unique!

Fall Harvest Table Runner (6030)

Fall Harvest Table Runner (6030)

This first one features absolutely beautiful fall themed fabric with brilliantly colored harvest produce, flowers and leaves on a black background. It’s truly striking. The center design is bordered with rust toned fabric with fall foliage. This runner measures 12″ x 45″ long and can be adopted from my website or from Amazon.com. Here are more views of this lovely runner…

Full View of Square Topper (6016)

Handmade Square Patchwork Table Topper

This pretty table topper was made with four log cabin blocks surrounded by two borders. It features deep brown, beige and cream colored fabrics. The center of each block and the outer border were made from the same neutral-tone floral cotton fabric. The center of the topper features a beige and cream calico print of leaves on vines. It would be pretty in a living room or dining room where neutral tones and wood are the main decorating themes.

The backing is a solid cream cotton fabric. This large topper measures 35-3/4 inches square! It was machine stitched for stability and reinforcement for longevity through continued use and laundering. As with all my table mats, it may be machine washed in cool water, gentle cycle, mild detergent. Air or machine dry on low heat.

Patchwork Square Table Topper (6009)

Handmade Patchwork Square Table Topper

I’m on a roll with square patchwork table toppers! I’m on a quest to fill out the inventory to replace some that have sold in recent months.

One of my latest creations is featured here. It’s made with high quality quilting cotton fabric featuring deep green and gold leaf and acorn prints. It was made with four log cabin blocks surrounded by a thin border of caramel colored fabric. The outer border matches the centerpieces of the log cabin blocks. It’s a coordinating leaf print with gold, deep green and beige leaves on a black border. The backing is a coordinating solid butterscotch cotton fabric. It measures 31 inches square. This eye-catching topper would be a beautiful focal piece on a dining room table, coffee table or buffet, especially if your accent colors are green and gold.

As with all my table mats, it was machine stitched (who hand-stitches any more???), with decorative stitching reinforcing all seams for stability and longevity for continued use and laundering. It may be machine washed in cool water, gentle cycle, mild detergent. Air or machine dry on low heat. It may be steam pressed, if desired.

This topper is up for adoption and is available from my website, HandmadeInIowa. Scroll down the page until you see this topper! Happy browsing! Judi

Square Table Topper (5996)

Handmade Patchwork Square Table Topper

I had a bit of a break over the holidays while my college professor husband was out of classes. Now that he’s back in school my life is returning back its own usual schedule…quilting, crocheting, singing, exercising, writing blog posts…

The square topper featured in today’s blog post is one I recently finished. It would add interest and a conversation piece to your living room or dining room, especially if your accent colors are deep green and gold. The backing is a coordinating solid butterscotch cotton fabric.

It’s made with high quality cotton quilting fabrics featuring a leaf print. The accent fabrics are calico prints in beige and cream colors. It was made with rectangle patchwork surrounded with green and gold borders. The topper measures 30-3/4 inches square. It would look especially pretty on a dining room table, coffee table, or buffet.

As always with my quilted table mats, it was machine stitched, with decorative stitching reinforcing seams for stability with laundering and continued use. It is machine washable in cool water, gentle cycle with mild detergent. It may be air or machine dried on low heat. The topper may be steam pressed, if desired.

The following pictures give you a good idea of the character of this quilted table topper. It IS a one-of-a-kind piece, as I don’t make any two identically. They’re certainly not mass produced!

Handmade Quilted Table Runner (over40-16)

Quilted Table Runner (66-3/4 inches long)

This beautiful handmade quilted table runner was made with the same fabrics as my last runner. (It’s too beautiful not to keep going with it!) However as always, no two of my runners are identical. This piece is slightly shorter than the previous one and the striped areas are slightly wider.

It was made with delicious dark chocolate fabric adorned with a gold floral pattern and gold filigree. The primary fabric is separated with two striped areas using coordinating beige and caramel colored cotton fabrics. The backing is a coordinating caramel color.

The runner measures 12-1/2″ x 66-3/4″ long. The centerpiece is 23-1/2″ long, with the striped areas each being 5-3/4″ wide. The end pieces are each 16″ long. This beautiful runner was all machine stitched with decorative stitching reinforcing all seams for endurance and stability through continued use and laundering.

It may be machine washed in cold water with mild detergent on the gentle cycle. Air or machine dry on low heat. It may be steam pressed if desired, preferably on the back only.

Handmade Quilted Long Table Runner (#5934)

Handmade Quilted Table Runner (12 x 116 inches)

My latest creation in table runners is a whopping 116″ long! If you’re looking for a long table runner, this one might meet your needs. It’s a one-of-a-kind…the only one like it made.

It features pretty neutral cotton color prints with a touch of brick reddish-rust color in the embellishments. The main fabric has a black background with a floral print in cream and chocolate. The embellishment fabrics have a brick print, so they coordinate well with the primary fabric.

It was all machine stitched and quilted. There is decorative stitching on all seams for stability and endurance with continued use and laundering. It may be machine washed in cool water on the gentle cycle and mild detergent. Air or machine dry on low heat. It may be steam pressed if desired. As always with my products, it was made in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.

The piece measures 12″ x 116″ long, so it would work well across a long table draping down the ends, or also on a buffet, dresser, foot of a bed, or even piano. It would look beautiful and classy in just about any setting. Please browse the images below if you’re considering purchasing a long table runner.
