Quilted Table Runners

Updated on August 6, 2013

Dining Table Runners for Fall

Quilted table runners give a cozy feel to your dining table all year long but are especially nice for fall.

The warm colors of fall are perfect when used in a quilted table runner. Earth tones evoke harvest and falling leaves and a general slowing down, which is perfect for the autumn season.

Maybe you like to quilt and make your own. I love the look of one of a kind linens. But if you don't have the time or the inclination, I've selected some great table runners for you to select from. The selection of quilted table runners provided here will help you give a subtle nudge to this special time of year.

A Short History of Quilts

Quilting was not something Americans dreamed up. Quilts and quilted clothing were made in ancient Egypt. And more recently, in the the 1600s, women wore quilted petticoats in Great Britain, Europe, and America as well as other places around the world.

Not all early quilts were pieced from scraps of cloth from old clothes. Some of the more decorative quilts were made using new material.

Hand piecing and hand sewn quilting isn't always thought to be the best method of sewing quilts. When sewing machines were first available, women used their new machines to show off the even stitching in the binding and quilting of their quilts.
