Tutorial Roundup: In the Kitchen - Table Toppers

If you're a nerd like me, you may have pondered (even for just a second) about the difference between Table Toppers and Table Runners. Really - why split hairs? They both go on top of a table and run between people sitting around it. Right? Maybe it's just me.

In my mind, Table Toppers are more square in nature, while Table Runners are longer than they are wide. This is by no means an official definition - but just my observation over the last two years of quilting.

In any case, the roundup this week focuses on the more square variety of table fare. I'm itching to make a new one for spring with my Easter decorations now up. What about you?


  1. I am currently working on a dresden plate wall hanging through Lily's Quilts QAL. That might make a great table topper. Thank you for bringing this to my attention even if it was unintentional. LOL

  2. @Quilter in the Gap - You are quite welcome :-)

  3. I love the top one, Star Drops, might be a bit complicated for my novice status though...
    I was also thinking exactly the same as you Quilter In The Gap - re the dresden plate!

  4. I totally agree with your reasoning - LOL! All of these are very cute, I'm going to check them out!

  5. I am just learing to sew and to quilt.. and just found your blog.. I hv added it to my sidebar of links.. I am hoping to learn how to cut fabric and piece together some patchwork table runners and quilts.. I am slowly falling in love with fabrics xo
