For this fun table runner, we used one-color designs from the One-Color Flower Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop.
The finished size is about 20" x 41 1/2".
You will need
Select the designs which you'd like to see on your tablerunner. Upload them into the machine. Stabilize your fabric, and embroider each of the "corner" designs 4 times each - 2 stitch-outs should go on the red fabric, and 2 stitch-outs on the green fabric.
After the stitch-outs are done, trim the stitch-outs to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" squares and sew the stitch-outs together in pairs, with seam allowance 1/4"
Then sew the pairs into a square so that the embroidery corners form a wreath, and so that the squares of different colors are diagonal to each other.
Hoop the squares again and embroider a "bouquet" design in the center of the "wreath".
You will need 3 such squares.
Out of the first fabric for the sashing, cut
Assembly of the Top:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4". Press every seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the squares into a long strip.
Sew the 1" x 30 1/2" strips to the long edges. Then sew the 1" x 11 1/2" strips to the short edges.
Sew the 3" x 31 1/2" border strips to the long edges and 3" x 16 1/2" border strips to the short edges.
Sew the 1" x 36 1/2" strips to the long edges and the 1" x 17 1/2" to the short edges.
Sew the 2" x 37 1/2" border strips to the long edges and 2" x 20 1/2" border strips to the short edges.
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 with a freemotion style all over the tablerunner.
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.
With fabric inks, pencils or markers add some color to the embroidery. We used Derwent IKTENSE watercolor pencils and aloe vera gel instead of water. We used the gel because it results in crisper lines than using water. This is explained in a Youtube tutorial.
Your table runner is done. Enjoy!
