    Table runner proportions

    I seem to have no inkling about proportions - my original runners all come out either too short and squat or too long and narrow. Is there an ideal set of measurements for medium to large runners?

    Hi, Deb!
    I'm not going to be much help but .....
    I either look for patterns with measurements that can fit my tables
    OR
    I go find furniture to fit what i made . Problem solved !

      I do the same thing as Carol. And if I don't have something to fit it on, turn it into a wall hanging!

        I make things up, so it is probably not the correct response that you are looking for, but......I decide what table that I need a runner for, eyeball what looks about right, and then measure it. I have been known to fold fabric in the shape that I want and then measure that. I think I usually make them about 12 x 46 for an long oval table about 77 inches long. That might be a little narrow, but seems to work right for dishes and things around it. I hope this helps. Suzy Que

          You could try taping pieces of paper together until they look about right on the table and then use those proportions in your runner.
