Braided Table Runner

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 14" × 40"

Designed By : Daisy Aschehoug

Although it may look quite complex, this colorful Braided Table Runner by designer Daisy Aschehoug uses a simple, Log Cabin-style construction method to create the dramatic braided center. Offset by a complimentary background fabric and simple straight-line quilting, the intricate-looking braid creates a scene-stealing design element that will get your dinner or brunch guests talking.

The fat quarter-friendly Braided Table Runner is also easy-to-customize for any aesthetic, from modern to traditional, depending on the fabrics or prints you choose to use. This versatility lets you personalize the pattern for any color scheme, whether you are making the runner for your home or as a special gift for someone else.

But regardless of the fabrics you decide to include, the finished 14″ × 40″ Braided Table Runner makes a gorgeous centerpiece that will dress up any table or occasion—from a casual gathering with friends to a festive holiday meal. And thanks to the timeless style, you will be able to use the runner for years to come. You’ll be thankful you made it!
