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!

It features dark chocolate cotton fabric with a gold tone floral print embellished with gold thread filigree. It has caramel and beige coordinating stripes toward each end piece. It was machine stitched with decorative stitching reinforcing all seams for stability and endurance. It’s a one-of-a-kind item!
This beautiful runner is 12-1/2″ x 71-3/4″ long. The centerpiece is 39-1/2″ long, with each end piece being 11-1/2″ long. Each stripped area is 4-1/4″ wide.
This lovely runner may be machine washed on the gentle cycle with mild detergent and cold water. Air or machine dry on low heat. It may be steam pressed if desired (preferably on the backing rather than the top).

Handmade Quilted Table Runner (31-40-5590)
I’m expanding the number of images of my table runners and such on my website. In conjunction with that I’m displaying some of the extra special ones on this blog site. They’re too pretty not to show off!
This striking table runner was made with the same fabrics as the runner in a previous blog post. However, the design is completely different. This involved more patchwork than the other. As are my other runners, this is one-of-a-kind!
It was made from high quality cotton quilting fabric that is absolutely stunning. The deep green and rust fabrics have leaf prints adorned with gold threads throughout, as the veins and outlines of the leaves. Really elegant! The coordinating fabric has a black background with bold fall flowers, leaves and produce, all with more gold threads. Together they make a brilliant centerpiece for any table, buffet, piano or mantle.
It measures 13-1/4″ x 39-3/4″ long. It is machine stitched with decorative stitching reinforcing all seams for stability and durability for long use and lots of laundering. Machine wash on the gentle cycle, cool water. It may be air or machine dried on low heat. Check out the views below! To claim this prize piece, visit my website at HandMadeInIowa.com. Enjoy! Judi
