I'm always looking for easy ways to add an overall quilting design to my table runners. Imagine my delight when I discovered the templates needed were right under my nose ... actually in a drawer that hadn't been reorganized in quite some time.
Sue Pelland Designs - Leaves Galore offers acrylic templates perfect for the task of chalking out a design on your table runner (https://suepellanddesigns.com/shop). There are 3 templates offered with varying degrees of slope. After quilting the design, I give the table runner a quick wash to remove the chalk lines. You may wish to experiment with chalk pencils as some brands are more difficult to remove.
Hope this suggestion makes your task easier. Carol
