"Just Roses" Quilted Table Runner with Applique Embroidery

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

  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • about 1/2 yard of black fabric for embroidery;
  • applique fabric stabilized with light-weight iron-on stabilizer;
  • about 1/2 yard of black-and-white cotton fabric for the borders;
  • about 1/2 yard of white cotton fabric for the sashing and bonding;
  • batting and fabric for the backing;
  • quilting threads;
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (if you don't use rotary cutter, you'll need a graphic and chalk pencil and sharp scissors).

Emboridery

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.


Cutting:

Out of white fabric, cut

  • 3 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 19 1/2",
  • 6 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 14" and
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 17 1/2".
Cut the rest of the white fabric into binding strips (2 1/2" wide and and the length of the width of the fabric), you will need ... for the binding.

Out of black fabric, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 16" and
  • 4 strips measuring 2" x 19 1/2".

Out of printed black-and-white fabric, cut:
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 19 1/2" for the borders on the short sides.
  • For the borders on the long sides you will need 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 53 1/2". This may be longer than your piece of fabric, so it may be easier to assemble them out of shorter strips.

Assembly of the Top:

Sew a 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" white strip between 2 round stitch-outs.
Sew the remaining two 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" white strips to the left and right edges of the round stitch-outs. Press the seams.

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!

Happy Stitching!
