Braided table runner







I love my new table runner and I loved it when I first saw it in the book Livin Large by Heather Mulder Peterson.  In fact, there are quite a few quilts in that book that I'm planning on making. The table runner was very easy to make and the directions were great. I'm also now a fan of Heather Mulder Peterson's blog, you ought to check it out.

The braiding is actually laid over a solid piece of fabric and is raw edge.

I'm always amazed at what black can do to a pattern. Think of white or another fabric underneath the braided strips - it just wouldn't pop like that. I love it.
