Spring Tablerunner with Redwork Embroidery

This quilted table runner features a cheery Spring theme: the pink quilted blocks represent the heads of tulips; on top of them, we embroidered hens and chicks; in the green grassy space in the middle, we embroidered daffodils, which are just starting to come up.

We used designs from two redwork sets - Rooster and Hen Set and Daffodil Set.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 20" x 50".

You will need: scraps of white and yellow fabrics, 1/4 yard of pink fabric and 1/2 yard of green fabric.

You will also need low loft batting or polyester craft felt for batting, fabric for backing and binding.

For embroidery, we used embroidery polyester threads.

Cutting:

Out of pink fabric, cut

  • 12 squares measuring 6 5/8" x 6 5/8"; cut them along the diagonal to get 24 triangles.


Out of yellow fabric, cut

  • 12 squares measuring 2 5/8" x 2 5/8";


Out of white fabric, cut

  • 12 squares measuring 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" ; cut them along the diagonal to make 24 triangles.


Out of green fabric cut

  • 24 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2";
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric. Subcut the strips into:
    • 10 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 6 1/2",
    • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 20 1/2",
    • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 46 1/2";
  • 1 strip measuring 4 1/2" x 46 1/2"

Assembling the Block

Sew white triangles to two sides of the yellow square. Make 12 units.

Take 6 pink triangles and cut each of them in 2, to get 12 smaller triangles.

Sew the small pink triangle to the white-yellow triangle. Make 12 units.

Sew the units to the large pink triangles. Make 12 squares.

Rotate the working piece until the yellow-and-white triangle is at the top. Place a green 2 1/2" square onto the lower left corner of the square, face down. Draw a diagonal.

Stitch along the diagonal. Cut away the corner with 1/4" seam allowance. Unfold the green corner and press.

Repeat for the lower right corner.

Make 12 blocks total.

Assembling the Top

Using the blocks and the 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" green strips, sew them into 2 rows:

Sew the 4 1/2" x 46 1/2" green strip between the rows.

Sew the 2 1/2" x 46 1/2" green strips to the long edges of the working piece.

Sew the 2 1/2" x 20 1/2" green strips to the short edges of the working piece.

Embroidery

Press the top and place it over a piece of polyester craft felt. The felt piece should be slightly larger than the top. Baste the quilt top to the felt along the green stripes. After the embroidery is finished, rip the baste.

Embroider one block at a time. Embroider designs from the Rooster and Hen Set on the blocks and the Daffodil designs on the wide green stripe.

Quilting:

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Spread your working piece (top with batting) over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free motion style all over the tablerunner.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The table runner is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
