Free Bonus Project: Dupioni Silk Table Runner
by Tricia Waddell

Combine traditional fabric piecing techniques with nontraditional quilt fabrics. Mixing colors and textures and varying the sizes of the patchwork pieces provides more visual interest and allows you to customize the runner.  

Guide to Full-Size Pattern PDF

  1. Download the PDF and save the file where you will find it easily. Once the pattern has downloaded, open the file and check that it has downloaded fully. The first page of the PDF is a layout drawing of the assembled tiles; use this as a guide while putting together the pieces of the pattern.
  2. Print the document as is, at 100%. DO NOT SCALE TO FIT and DO NOT CROP. The files are set up to be printed on letter-size paper (8 ½ x 11").
  3. To ensure that the pattern has printed at the correct scale, find the page containing the TEST SQUARE. The TEST SQUARE should be 2 x 2" (5 cm x 5 cm).
  4. To begin assembling the pattern, cut off or fold the margin on all sides of each page.

The pages are numbered in rows, so the first row of pages is numbered 1A, 1B, 1C, etc.  Line up the rows and match the dotted lines together so they overlap. Tape the pages together, using the illustrated guide to match each piece. Once complete, find your size, pin your pattern to the fabric, and follow the coordinating line to cut out or trace the pattern.

How pretty! Would be really nice in a modern dining-room, but would also be an elegant outdoor dining runner!

Versatile and elegant.
