I made this table runner today for my shop. I used up some more of the small scraps I had left over. This time I found some in pretty autumn shades. I made up some strips using the smaller pieces so they were as wide as I wanted the finished runner to be. Then I had a look through my box of fabrics and found I had some pretty curtain fabric in a beige that had some embroidery on it in brown and cream. I cut some of this into the same size strips as the patchwork and sewed them together into pairs. I also cut out a larger piece to use as a centrepiece. The runner still would not have been long enough when made up so I looked for some more fabric to use with it. I found another piece of the cream fabric I used on the last table runner. It is plain coloured but it has a self stripe to it. I cut this fabric into a bit wider stripes and then joined the whole thing together and gave it a good press.
I backed the whole thing with some cream coloured poly-cotton then I sewed some pretty beads to the two ends to give them some weight so they hung nicely.
