EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2020: ALL PATTERNS WILL BE SHIPPED WITHOUT A PLASTIC SLEEVE UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUESTED. PLEASE EMAIL ME AT AT THE TIME OF YOUR ORDER TO REQUEST SLEEVES IF YOU NEED SLEEVES FOR YOUR PATTERN (sorry folks - love you dearly, but I will not ship pattern sleeves separately after an order has shipped). Attention international customers: see my Etsy shop ( to order patterns. Please contact me at for more information.

Designed with precut 2 1/2" strips in mind, this is a colorful way to create a complete "tablescape": table runner, place mats, and even mug rugs (some people call them "coasters" but we like to be different around here). 



The criss-crossing tubes are sewn but not quilted to the backing, giving it an unusual 3-D effect (fabrics: Island Batik).

And to make this project simpler... it is self-quilting! The strips are sewn in place onto the assembled quilt sandwich.   This is a great weekend project or shop class.

See it here done in Moda precuts:



Notice that the place mat is done slightly different. Instructions for this version are also included in the pattern.

table runner: 19 1/2" x 36 1/2"
place mat: 20 1/2" x 15 1/2"
mug rug: 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
