My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

A Well Dressed Table

Hello Friends – I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

I love a well dressed table! Quilted table runners add quick color and style to my small but cozy dining area.

Table runners also make great gifts. Below are a few I made for friends and family this holiday season.

Penguin Pinwheels – I believe this was my favorite table runner this month! The red and aqua is so bright and cheery and the penguins are just too cute 🙂

I used the Simple Pinwheel tutorial by Abigail Dolinger. I used yardage for my table runner, the pattern however is jelly roll friendly. This was a quick and easy  – I will definitely use this pattern again.

Size: 23 x 38 inches
