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.

You will need
  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), choose red or green color to match your fabrics,
  • medium-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • about 1/4 yard of cream or white fabric for the blocks with embroidery;
  • about 1/4 yard of patterned green fabric (for blocks and borders);
  • about 1/2 yard of red or wine red fabric (for blocks and binding);
  • backing and bating.
Cutting:
Out of white fabric, cut
  • 7 squares measuring 6 1/2" x 6 1/2",
Out of the green fabric, cut
  • 2 squares measuring 6 1/2" x 6 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 18 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 30 1/2".
Out of red fabric, cut
  • 6 squares measuring 6 1/2" x 6 1/2",
  • 4 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2",
  • 3 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.
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

Embroidery:
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!
