Easter Egg Table Runner
Approximately 12” x 46 “
Size can be adjusted
Fat Quarter friendly
This quilted table runner consists of five pieced Easter Eggs which are inserted (not appliquéd) into a WOF piece. A piano key border adds a bright finish . . . and uses up the leftovers of the fat quarters. This is a great way to play with the decorative stitches on your machine and try one of the awesome specialty threads you see in your favorite fabric store.
