    If the coordinating fabric requiers 1/3 yard than why does the feature fabric require 1/2 yard. To me a person needs to purchase 3/4 yard for the feature fabric. I’m I mistaken. I purchase material yesterday, to make the runner, and 1/3 yard does not give me the required 18 inches wide for the coordinating fabric. Thanks for posting this runner on the web.

    I would have liked to have seen 2 pictures of the finished runner next to each other, for comparison. Sometimes, I have trouble figuring things out, until I see the end results. They are beautiful. Thanks, Karen

    Megan,
    Thanks for the tutorial! I just made two table runners in Christmas fabric in 20 minutes. I cut the feature fabric WOF by 12″ and the backing fabric WOF by 18″. This is a ‘go to’ pattern when you need an impressive gift handmade by you in minutes! All the girls in my quilting circle will be getting one for the holidays.
    It’s also a great way to update decor with a small amount of the latest fabric to hit the stores!

    Patsy: The two pieces are sewn together to form a tube. Then flatened out and ironed so the narrower strip is the center lengthwise piece, with an equal border on both sides. The borders on the front is the same fabric as the backing fabric. Then, the ends are finished off. The ends can be turned under as shown in the tutorial. Generally, the top border is usually from one to two inches wide.

    The yardages were transposed. 1/2 yd is 18″ and 1/3 yd is 12″ so you should reverse the instructions or your yardage for the feature fabric will end up being the coordinating one instead.
