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.
You can purchase this table runner from our Etsy store!
You will need
Out of white fabric, cut
Assembly of the Top:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4". Press every seam immediately after you make it.
Out of red and white squares sew 3 strips as shown on the picture: red square - white square - red square
Out of green and white squares sew 2 strips as shown on the picture: white square - green square -white square
Sew the strips together alternating the red and green rows:
Sew the 2 1/2" x 30 1/2" strips to the left and right edges of the top.
Sew the red 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares to the ends of the 2 1/2" x 18 1/2" green strips.
Sew the new strips to the upper and lower edges of the top.
Upload the files from the One-Color Christmas Block Set into your machine and embroider them in white 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.
Your tablerunner is done. Enjoy!
