Christmas Ornaments Tablerunner

For this handsome table runner, we used one-color designs from the One-Color Christmas Block Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop. It is very easy to put together.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 22" x 34".

Note: you can make the tablerunner longer by adding more rows. We recommending adding two rows at time: one with green and one with red squares.

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 freemotion style around the embroidery and with freemotion patterns on the blocks and borders.
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.
