October 6th, 2015 by Camelot Fabrics

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a great day!!

 

Time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are featuring one of the projects from our Free Projects Program our Meadow Star Table Runner pattern by Meadow Mist Designs. This table runner is the perfect mix between classic and modern, with the triangle starburst design. It would be a beautiful compliment to your Thanksgiving table, especially with the feminine and cool colors of our Darling collection. We adore how the pink and grey contrasting prints work together in this table runner!
