How to Sew Elegant Silk Table Runners

Little says elegance quite like lustrous silk fabrics. So why not indulge and incorporate a bit more silk into your home. Inspired by a Debbie Mumm design, this set of custom silk runners from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 2 are simple to make and easy to care for, thanks to a serger, strip-piecing techniques, and luscious washed silk dupioni.

And, when made in multiples and crossed, the runners can stand in for placemats as well. Sergers are well known for their knitwear applications and for tasks such as seam finishing. But they are often overlooked as the right tool for more decorative items. Perhaps surprisingly, the flat-lock seam produced by a serger is perfectly suited for any project where a flat, attractive, reversible seam is desired. In these table runners, the seaming perfectly complements the columns of silk fabrics, creating a beautiful and unique effect on any dining table.
