Reversible Halloween Table Runner

Reversible Halloween/Flea Market Fancy Table Runner

The Halloween table runner is finished.  I really enjoyed playing with the fabrics from the Guising fabric collection by Lizzy House.  I just love her fabrics, especially the Pearl Bracelets!  I also threw in a few other fabrics that I felt blended with the collection nicely.  The solid fabric is Robert Kaufman Kona cotton in snow.

This is another half square triangle project that is arranged to form a chevron pattern.  For some reason I keep getting drawn in to half square triangle projects.

I love closely quilted lines and thought they would work well with this chevron pattern.  This is quilted with sort of a random pattern, but each color section is quilted the same way.  Each of the squares are 4" and the finished size is 16 inches by 47.5 inches.

If you have read my previous post about the start of this table runner, here is where the Flea Market Fancy comes it.  I love the idea of a making a quilted item for a holiday, but I have such a hard time putting it away for the rest of the year.

So I decided to make this table runner reversible.  Use it for Halloween and once it has passed, flip it over and use it the rest of the year.  How great is that?

I love Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection.  This was the first time I cut into many of these fabrics.  I have had them on my shelf for a while waiting for the right time.  I decided I was being silly.  If you have them, you might as well use them and enjoy it!

This is such a bright and cheerful (I think I always say that) table runner and the quilted chevron pattern shows up nicely on both sides.

Update** I have listed a pattern for this reversible table runner in my Etsy shop if you would like to make one for your home or as a gift.  Here is the listing:  Reversible Table Runner.

I listed this table runner in my Etsy shop and you can find it here - Reversible Halloween/Flea Market Fancy Quilted Table Runner. SOLD

I can hardly believe I just finished a project for Halloween.  Where did the summer go?  I have a sudden urge to run to the beach and soak up as much sun and surf as I can before it gets too cool.  I love autumn, but I love summer more and I don't think I am ready for it to be over.

On a happier note, are you working on or planning a holiday project?  I would love to hear what projects you are up to.

Happy Sewing!

  1. I love table runners. I always bring them to a friend as a present but I never tried HST on them. It looks great!

    1. I puzzled over HST at first. It is the name of a tax in Canada! I prefer when it means half square triangle :)

  6. It's beautiful and love that it's reversible. The quilting is perfect for both sides. I'm like you. I made a Christmas table runner last year, mine was reversible too, I've had it on my table ever since and never once used the other side:)

  7. It is awesome. I love the quilting you did and it is so cool that it is reversible! I laughed when I read the part about saving your favorite fabrics. I do the same thing! It is silly, I mean, don't we buy it for the purpose of making something with it?? I try to tell myself that there will always be another favorite fabric, so it can be replaced. I just bought some pearl bracelet fabric in turquoise and red - super excited to have some for myself!!

    1. I agree! Fabric is there to be used, but when I get down to the last little bit of one fabric, I start to panic if it is one of my favorites. If it is a discontinued fabric, I don't want to use it. Which is silly because the alternative is to let it sit on my shelf and collect dust. I go back and forth, use.. save... use... save.

  8. Great Runner! I'm in a Table Runner swap right now, my first thought was reversible so the recipient can use it longer

  20. I love the Halloween side best, but both are very nice.

  21. love your use of neutrals and almost-neutrals to make the "white" part of the zig-zags. So much more visually interesting than just using white!

  24. Love your table runner! I am totally drawn to the HST's, too and I can't help it. I am also guilty of not wanting to cut into some of my favorite fabrics (I think it is totally normal is the fabric world), but I love to use them when I can see them all the time.

  25. Oh my front and back, wait which is the front and which the back???? No matter they are both beautiful! Love the quilting

  37. This is gorgeous!! You are so talented! I am tempted to buy one :) My husband is dying for me to learn how to quilt. When that happens, I will have to put something like this on my to-do list. You really have an eye for design and I love all the fabrics and color combos you chose. I love the Halloween side but the "every day" side is my favorite!! -Sarah @ Repeat Crafter Me
