Free Quilted Table Runner and Table Topper Patterns

Welcome to our page with free table runner patterns! You will find all types of table runners, including free quilted table runner ideas!

My first attempt at quilting after I had hand pieced and quilted with my grandmother as a teenager was a making a quilted spring table runner..

My dear friend Chris took me under her wing, went with me to purchase fabric (she was gentle as she looked at my choices and offered alternate suggestions), and had me at her house using her sewing machine to create my first project.

Chris had patience.  So much more patience than I had for myself.

I’ve done much quilting since, and I am so glad that I kept that simple and small quilted table runner.  I had thoughts of tossing it; it was such an embarrassment.  

But it is a wonderful reminder of how far I’ve come.  And I still put it on my table every spring.

I’ve learned that I love a table runner; it adds color and texture to my table, as well as adding interest to an otherwise boring piece of flat topped furniture.

If you want to change the mood of your room or decorate your table for the holidays, a table runner is just the thing to do so. The design and fabric of the table runner sets the tone.

A quilted table runner can be the foundation for your table decor, and it protects your table from damage like water marks, spills, food stains, and heat damage.

We have a great list of links to free table runner patterns, including patchwork table runners and other quilted table runners. There are some free patterns for table runners that look lovely as they are, and you may choose not to quilt them at all!

If you are looking for seasonal table runner patterns, check out the Valentine-themed runner, the Huggable Table Runner. For the Christmas holiday, take a look at the Christmas Star Table Runner pattern. It calls for dark green, light green, red and tan fabric to make a classic star design.

To celebrate the summer holidays, use our free Patriotic Celebration Table Runner pattern.  The directions explain how to use the Accuquilt Machine, but you can easily cut your own pieces.

The unique Fall Ribbon Table Runner pattern uses 1 ¾ yards of different fall ribbons and fusible webbing to create a lovely harvest-themed table.

And keep in mind, all of the table runners below can be altered for any holiday or season by simply changing the fabric colors!
