Simple to sew and simultaneously charming and elegant, this table runner usesthe designs from the Stained Glass One-Color Applique Rose Panel Set.
We used the designs for the mega hoop (6" x 11").
The finished size of the table runner is about 24" x 53".
Besides embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), you will need
Embroider the Rose Panel designs as described in the instructions. You will need 2 stitch-outs of each panel. Use light-weight cut-away stabilizer for the base fabric.
After the embroidery is finished, using a ruler and a rotary cutter, trim the stitch-outs leaving 1" around the embroidery. You will get 2 blocks with round designs measuring about 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" and 4 blocks with rectangular designs measuring 7 1/2" x 14".
Cut away the excess stabilizer on the back of the embroidery. Do not remove the stabilizer under the embroidery.

Quilting and Finishing:
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.
Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free motion style all over the table runner.
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.
Your table runner is ready. Enjoy!
