Dramatic, Sophisticated, Glitzy

The title of this post describes these three table runners that I have finished. My reversed S Swirl design works up nicely in any color scheme.  The trick is the placement so those checkerboards and their frame show up nicely.  You need five fabrics to make these. I think this one is the dramatic one.

Sometimes I pull it off with just the right fabric choices and sometimes it doesn't come out the same as I see in my head!  The one below is an example of that.  The outer wedges don't have quite enough contrast in my opinion. On the other hand maybe someone will like the blending better.  I mean we are all different and like different things.  This one has a sophisticated look with it's floral fabric.

And just to change things up a bit I made it into a round topper.  This one I think is the glitsy one.  Each one of these has gold metallic highlights in some of the fabrics.

Don't forget there is a fun blog hop happening.  It's the 12 days of Christmas in July blog hop hosted by Sarah at Confessions of A Fabric Addict.  My day is Tuesday, I hope you'll come take a peek at my project.  I have something frosty to share with you!!  Here is the full line up.

  1. Vicki, your table runners are ALL wonderful! My favorite is the round shape. I hope you don’t mind if I PIN that photo to remind myself when I get back into a sewing mood to maybe make one. Yours reminds me that I do need a fall table mat.

  2. Those always look so amazing to me! Are they sewn in strips to begin with and then cut in the wedges? I know what you mean about sometimes having an idea in your head that doesn't quite work in fabric!

  3. I love your curvy table runners. I never would have thought of it. I particularly like the S curve.

  4. Those curvy runners are amazing!! Great fabric choices!

  5. I love the curvy runner made into a much fun!

  6. Those runners are wonderful! Especially I like the round one, so pretty. Do you use a wedge ruler?

  7. These are great table runners!
    Be back to see what you are sharing for Christmas in July!

  8. A snowman, perhaps? You have never made one of those. They are kinda cute, just so you know :-p

  9. Very nice and unique! I read through a couple times to see if you mentioned the pattern or how you do that, but didn't see a reference!

  10. I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him...
