Quilted Table Runners: Thanksgiving Edition!

Do you like Thanksgiving as much as we do? Coming together with family and friends to give thanks together, share delicious food together, and make new memories just deepens our connections to one another. It’s also an opportunity to show off your quilted table runners! No Thanksgiving table is complete, in this quilter’s opinion, without an Autumn-inspired table runner or table topper.

Here’s a round-up of six quilted table runners to add patchwork gravy to your Thanksgiving décor!

Let’s Talk Turkey!

How can you not love this adapted Dresden Plate appliqué? Because the design uses a 5” square fabric pack and just a little yardage, you have the perfect excuse to grab one of those seasonal collections on display at your local fabric shop, and get sewing right away! Get this turkey on your table!

Flying Geese units can show up in any quilt design, it’s true, but aren’t they just destined to be part of a Thanksgiving table runner? Nothing says harvest season like geese flying south for the winter.
