Thanksgiving table runner

Thanksgiving table runner and napkins 1

I quilted this table runner last Thanksgiving after seeing the project idea on Purl Bee.  I used Moda fabric pre-cut squares, appliquéd them to the linen background, and then quilted it with a very high-loft quilt batting, so that it is thick enough to double as a hot pad for all of the various Thanksgiving dishes.

The napkins used a similar appliqué method with smaller fabric squares, then I ran a contrast colored stitch along the edges and then frayed the fabric up to the stitch line to create a fringed look.

I haven’t tried washing the runner yet, but the napkins washed so well that I couldn’t tell any difference afterwards.
